The Governor of the Omusati Region, Erginus Endjala, has been ordered by President Hage Geingob to prepare an apology that is unreserved, unequivocal and unconditional for widely reported tribal remarks Endjala recently made.
This order is contained in a strongly worded letter, dated 27 July 2017, to the Governor in which the President specifically states that the apology the Governor issued earlier this week falls far short of a comprehensive statement of regret.
The letter quotes Endjala as having simply said “I apologise if it offended or inconvenienced anybody”.
The Head of State writes, “as my representative in the region I expect you to uphold the highest standards of leadership and constitutional principles, especially with regards to fostering peace and harmonious relations in the region.
“Your unfortunate tribal utterances therefore are counterproductive and diminishing our concerted effort to build an inclusive Namibian House where all tribes and races live in unity and harmony.”
