Mbumba heads to South Africa

President Nangolo Mbumba will leave for South Africa for a working visit on Monday.

The Presidency confirmed the trip in a statement on Sunday.

This will be the third time Mbumba flies out of the country since becoming president following the death of president Hage Geingob six weeks ago.

His first trip abroad was on 4 March, when he flew to Luanda, Angola, for a one-day official visit.

Mbumba was in Gaborone last week for a memorial service in honour of Geingob.

The president told traditional leaders at Oshakati on Saturday that he went to Angola and Botswana to officially introduce himself as Namibia’s new leader.

He also told them he would travel to South Africa soon to introduce himself.
