President Hage Geingob has described the death of one of the country’s finest diplomats, Zed Ngavirue, as “having left a huge void which can never be filled”.

President Hage Geingob believes Namibia can emulate China’s approach in its fight against poverty by deploying targeted measures that address local conditions. A lot has been said about the struggle of healthcare workers during the pandemic, but little attention has been given to the role of faith leaders who minister to the sick and console the grieving. Botswana’s Batawana paramount chief Kgosi Tawana Moremi II, who was the keynote speaker at Chief Kilus Munjuku III Nguvauva’s inauguration in 2014, has described his sudden death as a rude shock. Popular Democratic Movement (PDM) leader McHenry Venaani has called on the Southern African Development Community (SADC) and international relations minister Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah to intervene in Eswatini. Otjozondjupa governor James Uerikua has vowed to crack the whip on corruption in the region. National Assembly Speaker Peter Katjavivi has encouraged Namibians to get vaccinated to protect themselves from Covid-19 infection, saying although he cannot say conclusively, he believes the AstraZeneca first dose he received might have saved him from severe symptoms. President Hage Geingob has expressed deep empathy and concern to his South African counterpart Cyril Ramaphosa over the ongoing violence in that country, triggered by protests against the incarceration of former president Jacob Zuma. The mortal remains of Chief Kilus Munyuku III Nguvauva, who passed away at the age of 64 due to Covid-19 complications, were laid to rest with full state honours at the Ovambanderu sacred burial site at Okahandja on Saturday. Acting director general of the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) Paulus Noa, whose employment contract will come to an end this month, yesterday said it is premature to say whether or not he would accept a new five-year contract if offered one. President Hage Geingob has once again nominated Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) director general Paulus Noa and his deputy Erna van der Merwe for reappointment for another five years. Namibia has committed a cash amount of about N$5.8 million, instead of deploying troops, to help SADC fight an Islamic extremist insurgency in the Cabo Delgado province of Mozambique. A deeply divided National Assembly yesterday failed to reach consensus of the nominated Electoral Commission of Namibia (ECN) commissioners, forcing an indefinite postponement of the special session. Amid a flurry of revelations that all is not well in the City of Windhoek’s ruling coalition, analysts have urged the parties to focus on service delivery. Omaheke governor Pijoo Nganate has advised the region’s local authorities to stop selling unserviced land to developers for housing. Deputy police chief Joseph Shikongo yesterday said Chinese nationals in Namibia will not be provided special protection, saying a letter circulating on social media, which is authored by police chief Sebastian Ndeitunga, has been misinterpreted. At least six opposition parties are expected to file an urgent application tomorrow, seeking an interdict against the alleged irregular procedure which paved the way for the reappointment of Paulus Noa and Erna van der Merwe as director general and deputy director general of the Anti-Corruption Commission, respectively.
