STATEMENT BY HIS EXCELLENCY DR HAGE G. GEINGOB, PRESIDENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF NAMIBIA AT THE OPENING OF THE 2016 LEGAL YEAR SUPREME COURT OF NAMIBIA, FEBRUARY 4, 2016, WINDHOEK

12647187 578250042331490 122654712886107951 nPresident Geingob: "Justice and law are the cornerstones of any functioning democracy that strives as stated in the preamble of the Namibian Constitution (and I quote) "to achieve national reconciliation and to foster peace, unity and a common loyalty to a single state and this we do through securing to all our citizens justice, liberty, equality and fraternity."

For more on this, find the President'd address below which he delivered on 04/02/2016 during the Opening of the 2016 Legal Year, at the Supreme Court of Namibia:

"The fact that our Judiciary contributes significantly to our efforts to build a successful nation has never been lost on the Government. On many occasions in the past, my predecessors, Comrades Dr Sam Shafiishuna Nujoma and Dr Hifikipunye Pohamba, affirmed the Government's steadfast commitment to the promotion of an efficient and effective administration of justice. They stated the fact that commitment to justice remained the cornerstone of the policy of our Government.

Today, I am here to continue the legacy of these great leaders - the legacy of peace and justice. A legacy in which we, the citizens of the independent Namibia, have chosen Constitutional democratic rule over autocracy and the rule of law over arbitrary use of governmental power. We have chosen respect for basic human rights over brutality and denial of basic freedoms." (...)

STATEMENT BY HIS EXCELLENCY DR HAGE G. GEINGOB, PRESIDENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF NAMIBIA ON THE OCCASION OF THE FIRST CABINET MEETING OF 2016

cabint opening 2Cabinet Opening 1

Dr. Hage Geingob writes the following introduction on his facebook page: "As I have declared 2016 as the Year of Implementation, I reminded Cabinet that our success as a Government depends on our ability to work in unison as one team with a common purpose; and to desist from developing silo mentalities, where we become holed up in our individual portfolios. We need to think as one and realise that the success in administering and executing the functions of the Government depends very much on team effort.

The philosophy of the Harambee Plan for Prosperity must penetrate all spheres and sectors of our society. Ministers must note that they are leaders, and must live and act the "Harambee way". The same goes for Permanent Secretaries and for all leaders in the Government sector.

Our Harambee Plan for Prosperity is applicable not only for the Government sector, but equally applies to the private sector, in our schools and other institutions of training and education and everywhere in society.

My statement is therefore copied below for your information and deliberation:

ON THE OCCASION OF THE FIRST CABINET MEETING OF 2016, FEBRUARY 2, 2016, WINDHOEK

I would like to welcome you all to the first Cabinet meeting of 2016, the Year of Implementation.

I trust that all of you had a well-deserved rest. I hope that we have all returned from our vacation with renewed vigour and a strong sense of purpose, ready to work hard in this New Year, as the challenges are many.

As all of you are aware, last year significant time was devoted to developing a shared Vision that will present the overarching framework for conducting our business going forward. I would like to thank all of you for contributing towards the Vision building process, in your daily engagements with the Namibian people.

There is no doubt – and we should be proud of it – that we have indeed succeeded in developing a shared Vision, not only as Cabinet or Government, but as a Nation at large. Vision building is not minor accomplishment, amidst an environment of high expectation, but we have succeeded. Today, the entire Nation, including those in the diaspora, has been re-energized and has rallied behind our common Vision. Across the length and width of our Republic, the Namibian people have embraced, rallied behind and internalized concepts such as the Namibian House, no one should feel left out and Harambee.

Tecklenburg - Wenn Jugendliche aus verschiedenen Erdteilen an einem Wochenende gemeinsam essen, miteinander tanzen und vieles über deren Länder erfahren, dann ist das interkulturelles Lernen. Darauf legt – eigenen Angaben zufolge – das Graf-Adolf-Gymnasium (GAG) als UNESCO-Schule besonderen Wert legt.

Zehn Schülerinnen und Schüler aus Namibia, Chile, Dänemark und der Türkei erleben ihre sehr individuell zugeschnittenen Gastaufenthalte bei ihren Partnerschülern. Englisch- und Spanischlehrer Björn Igelbrink organisiert die Gastaufenthalte von Josephine Belen Aldridge Sanhueza (San Felipe), Johanne Balslew (Kopenhagen) und Bakalim Sarp (Istanbul). Das Austauschprogramm mit der UNESCO-Partnerschule des GAG in Namibia, dem Concordia College in Windhoek, wird seit 2009 von Dr. Klaus Hefner koordiniert.

Um insbesondere den vier Mädchen (Natalia Nghishitelwa, Morveze-Rue Patoko, Dantago Uiras und Vannessa Tjiseseta) und zwei Jungen (Bradley Hoebeb und Evarist Embula) aus Namibia die Eingewöhnung im winterlichen Deutschland zu erleichtern, hat das Lehrerteam, bestehend aus Klaus Hefner, Andrea Bergmeyer, Jackey Tjikumise und Tobias Sechelmann, alle internationalen Gastschüler und deren Austauschpartner zu einem gemeinsamen Wochenende in der Jugendherberge Tecklenburg eingeladen.
