Lungu-Airport-1

President Edgar Lungu has arrived in Windhoek, Namibia to attend the inauguration of Namibia’s President-elect, Hage Geingob and this country’s 25th Independence Anniversary.

President Lungu arrived this evening by his Challenger Jet around 17:00hrs at Hosea Kutaku International Airport.

He was received at the airport by Member of Parliament, Zambia’s High Commissioner to Namibia, Sylvia Chalikosa, Mr Tjekero Tweya, a Member of Parliament and several government officials from the Zambian High Commission.

The President is accompanied by Foreign Affairs Minister, Harry Kalaba, former Republican President, Rupiah Banda, Special Secretary to the President, Amos Chanda, his special political advisor, Keizer Zulu and other senior government officials.

Speaking to journalist, en-route Country Club Hotel where the President will reside, Mr Lungu appealed to Namibian citizens to reflect where they came from and where they are in terms of politics and appreciate the peace and unity they are enjoying.

Other heads of state and government that have since arrived for the celebrations include Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe and former leaders including Thabo Mbeki the Republic of South Africa.

President Geingob, Namibia’s first Prime Minister, won the presidential elections last November. He will be taking over from President Hefikepunye Pohamba who recently won the prestigious Mo Ibrahim Prize.

  5. My desire is that the trip be conducted for its own purpose and not as a PR stint. Why should the trip to Namibia evoke sloganeering EL2016? Twenty eight heads of state were invited and those not attending are not making news around it. Those secure in their positions will either fly out and back without media hullalooboo we experienced until socialist regimes of Romania, North Korea…..allow the Preaident to go and take it as normal business of a president.
