Long-serving Okakarara Constituency Councillor Vetaruhe Kandorozu will not stand for reelection at this year’s Regional and Local Authority Elections.
Kandorozu who is currently in his third term, told CND-News that he is retiring from active politics later this year.
However, the Nudo politician says this might not be the end of his political career because “nobody knows” what the future holds.
Kandorozu also dismissed talks that he is being pushed into the political wilderness after a failed bid to lead the opposition party following two heated elective congresses.
“I am retiring from active politics and I want to plough back into the communities by establishing a rotary club that will help communities,” said Kandorozu.
“I have come to realize that politics is not the only thing where you can contribute to community development issues,” he added.
“I have read books and have been following many international leaders’ stories on life after politics, and I want to emulate what I have learned from these.”
On whether he will come back to active politics in the future, Kandorozu indicated that nobody knows what the future holds for him.
“We are in the process of registering the foundation, and once we are done we will then start inviting communities to start applying, or we will ingage the regional structures.”
He added: “I came up with this foundation, because as a councilor I have noticed that there are issues that the government does not look at in our community.
“I will not choose anybody to replace me as this will be the community’s choice, but I will be ready to advise if she or he wants to be advised.”
