Founding president in good health – Ithete

The founding president, Sam Nujoma, is in good health after being discharged from hospital a week ago.

This was confirmed by his personal doctor, Tshali Ithete.

Nuyoma will be celebrating his 95th birthday on Sunday, 12 May.

Speculation was rife on Friday that he was not doing well.

However, Dr Ithete says the founding president is recuperating at his home.

“The founding president, Sam Nujoma, is feeling well at his residence. He was discharged from the hospital a week ago and is recuperating well at home,” says Ithete.

In the meantime, the Sam Nuyoma Foundation has urged Namibians to demonstrate unity on his birthday.

“The Sam Nujoma Foundation wishes to request the Namibian Nation to engage in an act of selfless service through the demonstration of unity, resilience, self-reliance and capacity building efforts across the nation on 12 May 2024,” says the foundation in a statement.
