WINDHOEK, Mar. 29 – The Namibian Time Act No.3 of 1994 shall no longer be effective as from this year, following its replacement by the Namibian Time Act of 2017.
This means that there will be no time change on the 1st of April 2018, that would have otherwise meant an hour would be deducted from the current chronological status, effectively placing it one hour in advance of the Greenwich Mean Time.
In accordance with the 2017 Act, Namibia’s standard time will remain two hours ahead of GMT (or GMT +2) as from now on.
This was announced by the Ministry of Information and Communication Technology in a statement issued earlier today by Permanent Secretary Mbeuta Ua-Njdarakana.
