Namibian Sun turns 10

20 September 2017 | History

We are proud to announce that your favourite newspaper, Namibian Sun, has reached an important milestone and is celebrating ten years of existence today.

The newspaper has grown by leaps and bounds since it first hit the streets on the morning of 20 September 2007 – first as a weekly before converting to a daily publication.

“Looking back over the first decade of our existence, we have grown with the Namibian Sun community and our contribution and role in shaping public discourse over the years is there for all to see,” says the editor, Festus Nakatana. “We are committed to producing quality and independent content as well as acting in the interest of the public and holding institutions accountable, as we have always done in the last ten years. To all our readers and advertisers, thank you for your support.”
