UPM Press Release 14 December 2012.

The UPM would like to make it clear that the continued violation of the rights of the beneficiaries of the ``Rukoro Report`` by the Rehoboth Town Council would not go unchallenged. The UPM will conduct a public meeting on 03 February 2013 to inform the people involve about the situation and decide on a way forward. 

The UPM has on 27 September 2012, congratulated the Rehoboth Town Council on its efforts to finalize the implementation of the ``Rukoro Report``. It however seems that the said congratulatory remarks was send out at the wrong time as the so called efforts has again comes to nothing. The Swapo dominated Rehoboth Town Council has once again failed to lift up to its promises, which means that the beneficiaries again needs to wait until February 2013, with no guarantee that the allocation of the erwen would take place then.

The UPM also would like to air its disappointment with the decision of the RTC to continue making use of a ``Committee`` that consist of Swapo members only, as they do not represents the interest of the beneficiaries. Kaptein McNab has on 09 May 2012 already informed the former Minister of MRLGH about it concerns regarding the mentioned committee. The UPM regards the decision by the RTC to continue making use of the illegal committee, as a violation of the rights of members of the Rehoboth Baster Gemeente. 

The UPM has taken notice of the failure of the RTC to take action against people who engaged themselves in land grabbing in Blok E and Banhoff despite a Council resolution that action will be taken against those who instigate land grabbing. People on a daily basis put up shacks without Council`s consent but the RTC is mum on their action, probably because they support Swapo.
