Geingob salutes Nujoma

12 May 2019 | Local News

“As we recount his rich legacy, admirable journey of victory over tyranny and celebrate this auspicious day, on behalf of the government of the Republic of Namibia and her people, I would like to wish our beloved Founding Father a happy 90th birthday.”
These were the words of President Hage Geingob in a statement issued today, on the occasion of founding president Sam Nujoma’s birthday.
Geingob recounted Nujoma’s contribution to Namibia’s freedom saying he had been “devoted to serving with utmost fidelity the people of our land. At a very young age, he took up the fight and the struggle against the illegal occupation of Namibia by the South African apartheid regime”.
He said that as founding president, Nujoma’s leadership of a free Namibia commenced in 1990 with “another difficult journey for socio-economic justice in a democratic, united and independent nation. Under his legendary leadership, Namibians are today able to live a better life. The journey of prosperity and inclusive growth as part of our second struggle for economic emancipation remains incomplete”.
“We are immensely and eternally grateful for the solid foundations Comrade Nujoma has laid in an independent Namibia for our people to pursue a life of dignity and equality of opportunity.”
