About Us

The Landless People's Movement (LPM) is a political party registered with the Electoral Commission of Namibia on 8 February 2019.

It was formed as a spontaneous government response to elite capture of the land reform program by bureaucrats at the expense of the landless working class, urban dwellers, peasants, and land dispossessed at a time of increasing calls for genocide reparations. Urban land crisis, land reform, and agrarian reform pre- occupies daily struggles of LPM.
