President Geingob thanked the private sector and frontline personnel for the important role they played in combatting the pandemic. Equally, the President commended the uniformed personnel for maintaining order during difficult times.
The President also informed the Governors that the struggle was, among others, for a unitary state because Namibia was divided into homelands, adding that Regional Governors are therefore appointed to be the eyes and ears of the Central Government.
