Mbumba reaffirms Govt’s commitment to genocide, Orange River border talks

Nangolo Mbumba

President Nangolo Mbumba says Namibia’s government remains committed to concluding genocide negotiations with Germany.

He also says the government will conclude negotiations with South Africa on the Orange River boundary between that country and Namibia.

“I wish to assure the Namibian people that the government remains committed to conclude the genocide negotiations with Germany and the Orange River boundary negotiations with South Africa, to which our late president was firmly committed,” Mbumba said while delivering his state of the nation (Sona) address in parliament on Thursday.

Mbumba further said the new frontiers of green hydrogen and oil and gas will set the country firmly on the path of accelerated economic growth and shared prosperity.

“As a result of these promising trends, we expect the announcement of concrete results from the intensive offshore drilling programme. Furthermore, several uranium mines will re-commence operations. In addition, the construction of three green hydrogen pilot projects should be completed,” Mbumba said.

He added: “Furthermore, the Walvis Bay container terminal concession should become effective, paving the way for increased investment and container traffic.”

Mbumba also said he witnessed significant progress in the areas of fiscal discipline, unlocking of new economic opportunities, and the crafting of progressive policies.

He said this would anchor Namibia’s regional, and international competitiveness.
