MEDIA RELEASE: THE REPUBLIC OF NAMIBIA CONDEMNS THE MILITARY COUP D’ÉTAT IN THE REPUBLIC OF MALI
The Republic of Namibia condemns in the strongest possible terms the coup d’état undertaken in the Republic of Mali, on 18 August 2020, by elements of the military. The coup d’état constitutes a violation of the principles of the African Union (AU) and the African Charter on Democracy, Elections and Governance, which call for the “condemnation and rejection of unconstitutional changes of governments”. Moreover, the coup d’état is contrary to the African Union’s solemn commitment of “Silencing the Guns in Africa by 2020” as one of the flagship projects of Agenda 2063.
JOINT MEDIA STATEMENT: RESPONSE TO FIGHT THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC IN NAMIBIA, 22 APRIL 2020
COVID-19 is an unprecedented global health pandemic, which Namibia is also fighting to contain in order to save lives. It is in this context that, on 17th March 2020, His Excellency Hage G. Geingob, President of the Republic of Namibia, stated that “The health of Namibians is the first priority” and subsequently declared a State of Emergency. The government of the Republic of Namibia has therefore responded with urgent and determined measures, including a country lockdown to contain the spread of the novel Corona Virus into communities.
