Swapo party spokesperson Hilma Nicanor says they will not charge and nor expel former ministers Bernhard Esau and Sacky Shanghala from its ranks. This, Nicanor explains, is because they remain innocent until proven guilty by the courts. The spokesperson says that to Swapo, the #Fishrot accused remain until they are found guilty by a competent court of law. She added that Swapo “cannot jump the gun” and say they are guilty. The party has also not removed the two leaders from its central committee and politburo.
