Windhoek - Two prominent members of the newly formed Namibia Economic Freedom Fighters party resigned on Monday, saying that the party has diverted from its real mission."We started the NEFF party as the only hope to rescue the working class and poor, marginalised and impoverished Namibians. If we diverted from our real mission, we don't seem it necessary to sell out our people," party spokesperson Olsen Kahiriri and Werner Januarie stated in their joint resignation letter posted on social media on Monday."Imperialism leaves behind germs of rot which must be removed from our mission - we want no part in such rot," they said.Januarie was NEFF's transport "commissar" and he leads a transport labour movement.The NEFF was formed in June last year along similar lines to South Africa's Economic Freedom Fighters.NEFF founding members had travelled to South Africa last year to discuss forming their party before the launch.Disappointment and disillusion with the top party leadership about the party's goals and a dismal performance in last November's general elections caused the resignation, Kahiriri said."I am part and parcel of successes and failures of NEFF but our leaders did not accept the mistakes they made, so we opted out."If you run a true revolutionary movement you must separate yourself from capitalism and from imperialism," Kahiriri told a Sapa correspondent on Monday."You must work to restore dignity in Africa by getting back what you once owned and that is land," he added.Kahiriri would not say what his next move would be or whether he would start a new political movement.Kahiriri is vice-president of the Namibian Bank Workers Union.NEFF president Epaphras Mukwiilongo is yet to react to the resignations.NEFF garnered only 1,131 votes (0,13%) during parliamentary elections last November.
