President Nangolo Mbumba has called on all Namibians to rededicate themselves to work hard and broaden the scope of inclusive economic development, where no one is left out.

He said in a statement to commemorate the country’s 34th Constitution Day on Friday that this national day is taking place against the backdrop of the passing away of late president Hage Geingob, who was the chairperson of the Constituent Assembly and the chief architect of Namibia’s constitution.

This living document, he said, has been a guidepost for the smooth transition, which Namibians witnessed on the day of his untimely passing on 4 February 2024.

“We are reminded of the remarkable and inspiring journey we have walked under his able guidance and stewardship, as chairperson of the Constituent Assembly, founding prime minister and third president of the Republic of Namibia.

Indeed, a dark cloud is hanging over the people of the Land of the Brave, who have lost a revolutionary and visionary leader, who worked diligently to champion the fundamental rights and freedoms that are entrenched in the Namibian Constitution,” he stated.

The head of State further noted that in celebrating Constitution Day, all Namibians should be proud of the peaceful and stable country, envied by many nations across the globe. Namibia is a vibrant democracy with a government with a strong resolve to guarantee the fundamental rights and freedoms, which are prerequisites for a peaceful, united and prosperous country.

“I wish to remind Namibians that our work in pursuit of development and prosperity continues. As we celebrate Constitution Day, let us all recommit ourselves to the ideals of unity, peace and justice for all,” the Namibian leader added.
