Founding President Sam Nujoma yesterday arrived in Egypt’s Cairo, where he is expected to be conferred an award for outstanding achievement in the field of diplomacy for peaceful conflict resolutions on Saturday. Nujoma will receive the award from the Kemet Boutros-Ghali Foundation for Peace and Knowledge.
The foundation is named after Boutros-Ghali, a former United Nations secretary general and Egyptian diplomat.
Boutros-Ghali headed the UN from 1992 to 1996. He died in 2016.
The foundation was established in 2018 to promote his core beliefs of dialogue, access to information, as well as peace and knowledge with an emphasis on Egyptian heritage.
According to senior special assistant Paul Shipale, Nujoma will also pay a visit to the Gamal Abdel Nasser Museum, where he is expected to be received by Hakim Nasser and his wife Hoda on Friday. Nujoma will also pay a courtesy call to Egyptian president Abdel El-Sisi on Saturday before the conferment of the award later that day. He is also expected to visit the New Administrative Capital, a large-scale project in Egypt that has been under construction since 2015.
