President’s 2nd term inauguration to be “low key” gathering

Estelle de Bruyn

Several heads of state of neighbouring countries will be in attendance Saturday when Pres. Hage Geingob is sworn in as head of state at State House. It would be Dr. Geingob’s second term in office.

With the cancellation of the Independence Day celebrations at the Independence Stadium in Windhoek, where the president is usually sworn in, the formal ceremony has been moved to State House.
The spokesman for the Presidency, Dr Alfredo Hengari, told Namib Times that the celebrations will be in keeping with the directives issued by government to curb the spreading of Corvid-19 (Coronavirus). No more than 50 people will be in attendance.
Heads of state of South Africa, Botswana, Angola and Zimbabwe will be among the attendees. Pres. Cyril Ramaphosa of South Africa, who is also the current chairman of the African Union, will represent the whole of Africa at the inauguration.
