All eyes on Geingob's SONA
16 April 2019 | Local News
President Hage Geingob is expected to deliver his State of the Nation Address (SONA) tomorrow afternoon and is expected to address the country’s economic crisis in the face of record job losses.
During the 2018 SONA, Geingob made a number of promises and committed to root out corruption which he said was the nation’s “enemy number-one” in the war against widespread poverty.
However, there is a perception that he only pays lip service and has failed to walk the talk.
Local economist Dr Kakujaha-Matundu said this time around Namibians would expect him to walk the talk.
“He has always relied on the power and independence of the judiciary and its ability to deal with corrupt officials but we would love to see him taking action. If someone is implicated in serious corruption then we would not want to see them at the forefront of the party or government affairs. Why is he still keeping those implicated in corruption in his cabinet?” he said.
