I am here today to account to you and the Nation at large on progress made since then and to release the Harambee Prosperity Plan that outlines our future policies over the next four years.

Honourable Speaker, Honourable Chairperson,

Idowu Koyenikan once said, “Your pride for your country should not come after your country becomes great; your country becomes great because of your pride in it.” Having entered into our 26th year of Independence, we bear witness to this notion. I stand before you today to proclaim that the Namibian House is in great shape. The State of the Nation is sound. Let our national pride continue driving us towards the full realization of our dream, One Namibia, One Nation.

We have developed the Harambee Prosperity Plan as the implementation roadmap to fast-track the achievement of our development goals. The Prosperity mandate will not be easy, but, with all Namibians working together in the spirit of Harambee, it is possible.
