SADC summit goes virtual



President Hage Geingob and other regional leaders will today virtually participate in the 40th ordinary SADC summit in response to ongoing public health concerns around hosting large gatherings. 
“In view of the challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic, the summit will be conducted virtually with a reduced agenda,” said Presidency spokesperson Alfredo Hengari. 

Tanzanian president John Magufuli will hand over the chairmanship to Filipe Nyusi of Mozambique during the summit. 

The summit is also expected to deliberate on critical matters within the region. 
The political situation in Zimbabwe, which has seen the leadership accused of human rights violations in the last couple of weeks, is likely to be discussed during today’s summit as well. 

“Covid-19 has significantly transformed the way we govern, do business and conduct diplomacy – and the virtual summit is ample testimony,” said President Geingob, who chaired the regional body between 2018-2019. 
“I have often repeated that the health of our people remains the biggest priority and we should proceed as SADC in a manner that minimises the socio-economic impacts of Covid-19 for citizens in the region.” 

Geingob said the summit provides an opportunity for member states to work on resilient processes and systems, as well as for institutions to contain shared and formidable challenges related to the virulent pandemic. 
“However, as we focus on the immediate challenge of Covid-19, we should not lose sight of the strategic challenges of peace and security for the region. There is no sustainable development without peace.”

    I am here to testify for what DR. OKO did for me. I have been suffering from (GENITAL HERPES VIRUS) disease for the past 3 years and had constant pain and itching, especially in my private part. During the first year, I had faith in God that I would be cured someday.This disease started circulating all over my body and I have been taking treatment from my doctor, few weeks ago I came across a testimony of Rose Smith on the The internet is testifying about a Man called DR.OKO on how he cured her from 7 years HSV 2. And she also gave the email address of this man, advise anybody to contact him for help on any kind of diseases that he would be of help with, so I emailed him telling him about my (HSV 2) he told me not to worry that I was going to be cured!! Well, I never doubted him. I have faith he can cure me too, DR. OKO prepared and sent me Healing Oil, Soap, roots and herbs which I took. In the first one week, I started experiencing changes all over me, after four weeks of using his Roots/ Herbs, Oil and Soap, I was totally cured. no more itching , pain on me anymore as DR.OKO assured me. After some time I went to my doctor to do another test.the result came out negative. So friends my advice is if you have such disease or know anyone who suffers from it or any other disease like *HPV, HBV,etc. you can contact DR.OKO for help via email...drofenmu@gmail.com or WhatsApp him through his mobile +2347063982352
