Former U.S. president George W. Bush lands at Walvis Bay

A jet carrying former U.S. president George W Bush and his wife Mrs Laura Bush touched down at the Walvis Bay International Airport yesterday. The Bush-couple is on a visit to Namibia and Botswana this week.

A small fleet of several helicopters were waiting for the Bush couple and a few travel companions at the Walvis Bay International Airport. Shortly after landing they were whisked off to an unannounced destination for two days of personal tourism to appreciate Namibia’s natural beauty.
The Bush Centre declined yesterday to comment on the private tourism excursion. The US-Embassy in Windhoek could also not comment, as this diplomatic mission can only comment on behalf of a serving U.S. Head of State.
“The Embassy’s role in the visit of a former president is essentially that of middleman. President Bush is a former U.S. government official, not a current one. Instead, communication about his trip can only originate from the Bush Centre.
Unfortunately, they are choosing not to comment”, a source explained yesterday.
Other sources confirmed though that it was indeed the Bushcouple that emerged from the jet yesterday and they and a group of people were flown to an unannounced destination for a private trip.
