Uphold law and order during election period – Mbumba

As Namibia prepares for the polls on 27 November, president Nangolo Mbumba has stressed the importance of upholding law and order and ensuring peaceful, credible and fair elections.

“We all have a collective responsibility to ensure that Namibia maintains its reputation as a peaceful and stable country,” he said during the Independence Day commemoration at Katima Mulilo on Thursday.

Mbumba said in the past 34 years, Namibia has built itself a proud legacy of democracy, peace, stability and unity in diversity.

“Now we must summon the resolve to forge ahead and together take care of this Namibian House so that it becomes a true home of hope, joy and prosperity for all its citizens and generations to come,” he said.

The president also warned those seeking to disrupt Namibia’s peace, unity and economic progress against doing so.

“Those who are planning to disturb peace, unity and economic development in Namibia are enemies of all our people. True citizens of Namibia should not support or follow these individuals or groups who have chosen the path of division instead of the path of unity,” he said.

Mbumba called on the security cluster to increase vigilance to safeguard Namibia against external and internal threats.
