President Geingob congratulates Dr Nujoma on his 92nd birthday

Namibia’s Founding President and Father of the Namibian Nation, Dr Sam Shafiishuna Nujoma, celebrated his 92nd birthday on Wednesday. Namibia’s current Head of State, Dr Hage Geingob, sent Dr. Nujoma a congratulatory message.

The message read as follows: “The history of Namibia is defined by the fight against colonial oppression, racism, and tyranny. Under the visionary leadership of Founding President and Father of the Namibian Nation, Comrade Sam Shafiishuna Nujoma, independence was achieved after a bitter struggle and Namibia embarked on a path of sustained peace, reconciliation, and development.
Our independence would not have been possible without Comrade Nujoma spear-heading the mobilization of Namibians from all walks of life in a unified cause, fighting against the injustices of colonial oppression. At independence, on 21 March 1990, Comrade Nujoma invested with utmost devotion his energies towards developing a free nation. It is a task Comrade Nujoma performed admirably until 2005.
Today, we celebrate another birthday of our icon, a true hero and the epitome of the ideals of our struggle and sacrifice. On this day, we pay tribute to this towering figure who dedicated his life to the cause of freedom and the development of an independent Namibia. As we celebrate the birthday of this extraordinary Namibian, we are reminded of the values of hard work, solidarity, and commitment towards realising prosperity for all in the second phase of our struggle.
In retirement, and specifically, during this difficult period of Covid-19, Comrade Nujoma has continued to show exemplary commitment to the work of the SWAPO Party-led Government in building a better Namibia by always being available when we call on him for advice.
On behalf of the people of the Republic of Namibia and the Namibian Government, I wish Comrade Sam S Nujoma continued good health and a happy birthday.
Long live the Father of the Namibian Revolution! Long live the icon of our Liberation Struggle!
Happy 92nd Birthday Comrade Sam Shafiishuna Nujoma!” (Pictures herewith are from The Namibian and Travelnews Namibia respectively).
