STATEMENT ON THE CURRENT POLITICAL SITUATION IN ZIMBABWE

23561572 1138001479635873 538937252849627633 nThe Government of Namibia has been following the unfolding developments in Zimbabwe with concern, and associate itself with the Statement issued on behalf of SADC.

As neighbours, Member States of SADC and AU, Namibia and Zimbabwe share a common destiny and common aspirations for peace, economic prosperity and democracy for our countries and people. Namibia is concerned that the present situation in Zimbabwe creates uncertainty that is not conducive to peace, stability and consolidation of democracy in Zimbabwe and the region as a whole.

Namibia notes that the Zimbabwe Defence Force has assured the Zimbabwe public and the international community at large that they have not overthrown the Government of Zimbabwe and that they have no intention to take over the governance of the country.

Namibia further notes that the situation in the country remains relatively calm. It is the expectation of the Government of Namibia that democratic institutions in Zimbabwe will continue to carry out their constitutional functions. Namibia urges all the parties concerned to scrupulously adhere to the relevant provisions of the SADC Treaty on Governance and the African Union Constitutive Act. Namibia will continue to follow closely the situation in Zimbabwe.

These Namibian Small and Medium Enterprises have undergone training and gathered experience which allows them to conduct the works on their own accountability without guidance by main contractors.

The project will cost approximately 12,4 million Euro (200 million Namibian Dollar) of which 60 million Namibian Dollar will be contributed by the Namibian government. The project fosters economic development and social progress through improved access to education and health services.

Cybercrime Parliament UNAMSpeaker of the National Assembly, Hon. Prof. Peter Katjavivi has urged fellow Parliamentarians to expedite the process of enacting a law dealing with cybercrime as Namibia continues to rapidly embrace information and communication technology.

Katjavivi was speaking when he officially opened a one day Cyber Security Conference for Members of Parliament in Windhoek today (06/11/17).

The conference is an initiative of Namibia University of Science and Technology (NUST) in collaboration with the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Information and Communication Technology and Innovation.

The gathering that has brought together lawmakers and industry experts is intended to capacitate lawmakers on the technical subject of cyberspace, a global trend that not only comes with unlimited opportunities but also presents threats such as cybercrimes. According to Katjavivi, Namibia is not an exception. “Our namibian cyberspace is highly vulnerable to cyber threats and attacks. These types of cybercrimes can range from financial fraud, cyberbullying, hacking and child pornography among many others”, noted Katjavivi.

Chairperson of the Parliamentary standing committee on ICT and Innovation, Hon. Faustina Caley added that the conference was taking place at an opportune time when Parliament is expected to debate the electronic transaction and Cybercrime bill that is in the process of being finalized.

The bill will also target online child pornography among other cybercrimes.

Regional and local authority Councilors, Distinguished Guests, Ladies and gentlemen.

In keeping with its ongoing commitment towards improving the livelihood of the Namibian people as well as our declaration of an all-out war on poverty, in 2015, the Government launched the Massive Urban Land Servicing Project (MULSP), to expedite our ongoing efforts in terms of servicing and delivery of residential land and affordable housing in urban areas.

As you may recall, in 2015 I visited sites in Windhoek, Oshakati and Walvis Bay, accompanied by Ministers Shaningwa and Schlettwein, for the purpose of identification of sites to kick start the implementation of the Massive Urban Land Servicing Project. Following our visits, technical officials then proceeded to craft the details of the project sites and scope. This process resulted in the selection of two sites in Walvis Bay, namely Extensions 5, 6 & 7 Kuisebmund and Extension 7 for the Project. Please, click here to read more....
