CDV launches election manifesto

CDV launches election manifesto

The manifesto launch of the Christian Democratic Voice, CDV, is underway in Windhoek's Havana residential area.
CDV was founded in 2013 in response to the aspirations of Christians to promote genuine democracy, unity, fairness and prosperity.
Addressing supporters, the party president Gotthardt Kandume says the party wants to represent the Christian religion in parliament. Kandume says Christians' interests in Namibia are not well represented in the political arena.
He pointed out at what he calls maltreatment of church leaders through what he terms the unlawful closure of churches.
Kandume also spoke against the proposal by the finance minister for churches to pay tax. He said churches do not have any fixed income and therefore they should not be exposed to unfair financial exploitation.
The CDV President called on all Christians to vote his party for parliament representation. He said the party has a concrete plan for the next five years on how it will rescue all Christians in Namibia from social injustices currently prevailing in the country.
