Sources said that a faction of the party’s leaders wanted to push for Pohamba to resign and allow the party to hold an extraordinary congress to elect a new top four.
Another section in the CC allegedly pushed for natural progress, as stipulated by the party’s succession rules adopted by the CC. Pohamba succeeded Sam Nujoma as Swapo president three years after he won by a landslide to become Namibia’s president in 2004. Pohamba won the Mo Ibrahim prize for leadership for his decision to give up power when his term as state president expired earlier this year.
