AFTER about four months of silence, the so-called children of the liberation struggle, also referred to as 'struggle kids,' yesterday made a brief appearance at the Prime Minister's office to push for answers on when they will get jobs.
More than 200 of them continue to live at the Ndilimani Cultural Group farm about 10 kilometres out of Windhoek.
The group was moved to the farm in July after their eviction from the Swapo Party headquarters where they had been camping.
Five committee members, clad in Swapo colours, appealed to Prime Minister Nahas Angula in a letter to speed up the process of finding jobs for them.
"As aggrieved children of the liberation struggle, it is with falling and broken hearts we are forwarding this letter to you. It is four months that we are living under harsh environment in which we are negatively exposed to any type of harm. We are human beings dumped in an inhumanly living place. We are cordially appealing to you to have us solved before November 28 2012," they wrote in their letter.
Group leader Petrus Nendongo said the farm is without electricity and flush toilets and they are uncertain where their next meal will come from.
Nendongo said at least 95 members of the group had received appointment letters as clerks, assistants and drivers in the civil service, but were not told when to start working.
Angula has agreed to meet the committee on Thursday to discuss the contents of the letter.
