Dr Nujoma

Namibia’s Founding President Dr Sam Nujoma paid a courtesy visit to the port of Walvis Bay on Friday where he was briefed on latest developments. The Founding President was deeply impressed with progress made with the various port expansion projects and added the port of Walvis Bay is now a facility with an importance for the African continent and no more a port only for Namibia.

President Nujoma in 2013 alongside then President Hifikepunye Pohamba officiated at the ground breaking ceremony which marked the official commencement of the container terminal on reclaimed land construction project. Now only a few years later the countdown has started to the commissioning of the new container terminal.
President Nujoma also celebrated his 90th birthday on Sunday and was congratulated on this life milestone by Namibia’s Head of State President Hage Geingob.
President Geingob paid tribute to Dr Nujoma’s hard work for Namibia and its people which started at a very young age. A fight of many decades that led to the Independence of Namibia in 1990, but also Dr Nujoma’s sacrifices after Independence as Namibia’s first democratically elected President. President Nujoma served three terms as Namibia’s Head of State, the first term being the Founding Father and two subsequent terms as President of the Republic of Namibia.
