Honourable Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah,Vice-President; Honourable Peya Mushelenga, Minister of International Relations and Cooperation

State House, Windhoek, Tuesday, February 13, 2024

Ladies and Gentlemen: Good morning.

1. I have the honour to welcome you all to this first Cabinet Meeting of 2024, which is taking place against the backdrop of the passing of our beloved President, H.E Dr. Hage G. Geingob. Our country has lost a visionary and revolutionary leader, whose footprints will remain indelible in the annals of our country’s history. As members of Cabinet, let us pick up where he left and take our country forward. This is a difficult and sad time for the widow and children, and our thoughts are with them. It is also a difficult time for you, as Cabinet Members and the entire nation, but we must be strong and forge ahead without faltering. That is what our President Dr Geingob would have wanted us to do!

2. This year is the Year of Expectations; the Year of Elections, in which the citizens of the Namibian House will elect the next leadership to lead the nation for the next five years. As we navigate through the challenges of this year, our citizens have higher and clearer expectations of us. We have to implement Government plans and programs to deliver quality public services to our people.

3. As we commence with the work of Cabinet, we should be mindful that the people of Namibia have entrusted us with the mandate, to grow the economy, to improve their livelihoods and enhance inclusive prosperity for all our citizens in the Namibian House, irrespective of their ethnic origin, race and gender. I encourage all Namibians to hold hands and pull together in the same direction towards national unity, peace and stability which are the prerequisites for meaningful socio-economic development.

4. Over the past few years, our country has faced unprecedented challenges such as the Covid-19 pandemic and devastating droughts which negatively affected the growth of our economy, thereby constraining our national budget. However, I must also indicate that our collective efforts, as a nation, during the past years aimed at achieving economic recovery, inclusive growth and shared prosperity under the Harambee Prosperity Plan I and II, have born the desired results. Our country is back on the positive trajectory of economic recovery in various sectors, particularly agriculture, mining, fisheries, tourism, oil and gas and green energy.

5. I am therefore urging the responsible Government Ministries in the sectors that I have just mentioned to start implementing all pending programmes to fast-track economic development and create employment opportunities for our people, particularly the youth.

Your Excellency, Comrade Vice President; Right Honourable Prime Minister; Honourable Cabinet Members:

Statement by His Excellency Dr Nangolo Mbumba, President of the Republic of Namibia, on the Occasion of the Official Opening of the 9th Session of the 7th Parliament, 6 February 2024, Windhoek

Ladies and Gentlemen, Good Afternoon.

I am honoured to join you at the official opening of the 9th Session of the 7th Parliament, in accordance with the longstanding practice established since independence.

The assumption of this legislative year is taking place at the time of the loss of our President, H.E Dr Hage G. Geingob on 4 February. He is one of the Founders of the Namibian Constitution, having chaired the Constituent Assembly which drafted our Constitution. He served, as the First Prime Minister and Third President of our Republic. Our country has therefore lost a national icon, a Hero, a committed and dedicated leader who did not only contribute to the building of the modern Namibian nation, but has made durable footprints in Namibia, the African continent and globally in all the spheres of human endeavour. May his soul rest in eternal peace. (Let us please observe a minute of silence).

As Namibians, we should therefore pick up from where he left and re-dedicate ourselves to the noble ideas of unity and inclusivity for all our citizens in the Namibian House.

Announcement of the Passing of H.E Dr Hage G. Geingob, President of the Republic of Namibia, 04 February 2024

Fellow Namibians,

It is with utmost sadness and regret that I inform you that our beloved Dr. Hage G. Geingob, the President of the Republic of Namibia has passed on today, Sunday 4 February 2024 at around 00h04 at Lady Pohamba Hospital where he was receiving medical treatment from his medical team. At his side, was his dear wife Madame Monica Geingos and his children.

His medical team, as I informed the nation only yesterday has been trying its utmost best to ensure that our President recovers. Regrettably, notwithstanding the team’s spirited effort to save his life, sadly, fellow Namibians, President Geingob passed on.

Fellow Namibians,

The Namibian nation has lost a distinguished servant of the people, a liberation struggle icon, the chief architect of our constitution and the pillar of the Namibian house. At this moment of deepest sorrow, I appeal to the nation to remain calm and collected while the Government attends to all necessary state arrangements, preparations and other protocols. Further announcements in this regard will be made.

While keeping the President’s bereaved family, and you, dear fellow Namibians, in our thoughts and prayers, Cabinet will convene with immediate effect in order to make the necessary state arrangements in this regard.

May the Soul of our beloved Dr Hage G. Geingob Rest in Eternal Peace.

H.E. DR NANGOLO MBUMBA

ACTING PRESIDENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF NAMIBIA.

Statement by His Excellency Dr Hage G. Geingob, President of the Republic of Namibia on the Occasion of the New Year 2024, Sunday, 31 December 2023

Fellow Namibians,

When I look back to the past 12 months, which have defined the Year of Revival, I am pleased with the giant steps we have made as Namibians towards our collective prosperity. We are on course in our ambition to leave Namibia in better shape, come March 2025. The foundations of the Namibian House have been strengthened. Namibia is on course for a sustainable economic revival.

Many Namibians will recall the difficulties we experienced over the past years, starting with a global commodity crisis in 2015, which led to protracted declines in Government revenue, affecting the implementation of the ambitious development and infrastructure manifesto the Government had planned to implement in the noble pursuit of prosperity for all.

Many Namibians will also recall that between 2016-2019, the country experienced the most severe droughts to be recorded in Namibian history, forcing Government to spend in excess of 3 billion Namibian Dollars on drought relief to the affected sectors of our population.

Namibia calls on Israel to cease its attacks and refrain from engaging in provocative acts
against the Palestinian people and to respect international humanitarian law.

Namibia continues to support diplomatic efforts aimed at reaching a lasting peace solution leading to a two-state solution along the 1967 Israeli border with East Jerusalem as the capital of Palestine.
