Oshakati High Court receives over 300 legal books

OSHAKATI – American-based organisation Books for Africa yesterday donated over 300 legal books to the Oshakati High Court library.

The books are valued at about US$20 000 translating to about N$300 000.
Chief Justice Peter Shivute, in his acceptance speech, said the donation is a strategic step towards decentralisation of information and equally marks the expansion of legal reference libraries in the country, which is in line with the decentralisation policy. Shivute said the judiciary is working tirelessly to fill the empty library with books with the dream of making it a national public law library. Emphasising the importance of public libraries, the chief justice said public libraries are the learning mechanisms and knowledge resources necessary to empower citizens and ensure sustainable solutions for national development.

“By accepting this generous donation, this library will now be able to effectively serve the public’s need for legal resources; to assist members of the public who are interested in this resource to develop themselves and know their fundamental human rights and freedoms,” said Shivute.

The books were donated through Books for Africa in partnership with Thomson Reuters, through Jack Mason Law & Democracy Initiative. In addition, Shivute said the donation should be a catalyst that sparks critical thinking and civic engagement around important national issues for all Namibians.

The chief justice urged users of the library to preserve the books and to ensure that they are put to proper use as a reflection of mutual respect and commitment to future endeavours with Books for Africa and the Jack Mason Law & Democracy Initiative.

Lane Ayres of the Jack Mason Law & Democracy Initiative Books for Africa lauded the Namibian judiciary for its independence in exercising its duties as well as for digitalising their work. To date, Books for Africa has donated over 45 million books to 55 African countries.

    I want to testify of how i got cured from Herpes with the use of herbs. I got diagnosed of Herpes in 2018 I have visited several hospitals but all to no avail, my world was gradually coming to an end but i keep believing there is cure. I saw a post in a health forum from miss cherlyn solie on how she was cured from herpes with the use of Dr JOE herbs and she also wrote Dr JOE cure all kind of deadly diseases including Herpes, HIV, ALS, HPV, HSV1&2, MND, Epilepsy, Leukemia, Asthma, Cancer, Diabetes. At first i doubted if it was real but decided to give it a try and i contacted this herbal Doctor on email (drjoehome@gmail.com) she provided on the comment and explain my problem to him and he told me that he is going to prepare a herbal medicine for me which he did and he sent it to me through UPS service, when i received this herbal medicine, he gave me instructions on how to use it, after taken the medicine as instructed, i went for check up and the result shows negative and i was cured of this deadly disease within a week, I am now free from Herpes. You can contact Dr JOE on his email: drjoehome@gmail.com or you can call and Whatsapp him on +2348155730398. . All thanks to Dr JOE for what he has just done for me and i will continue to share this great testimony on every platform so can join hands to eradicate these disease out of this world.
