Namibia’s President Hage Geingob said Tuesday that Namibia should seize the opportunity offered by the transforming geopolitical landscape to pursue its national interests in building partnerships.

Launching the Theo-Ben Gurirab Foreign Policy lectures in Windhoek, Geingob also said Namibia’s foreign policy should speak to the country’s national development plans.

According to Geingob, they named the lectures after Gurirab because of the role he played when he was the foreign affairs minister.

Gurirab was Namibia’s foreign affairs minister from 1990 to 2002.

Through the lectures, Gurirab will interact with the public regarding Namibia’s foreign policy.

The aim is to shape Namibia’s international relations to meet the goals of the development plans.

Geingob urged the public to be concerned with conflicts, drought and refugee problems in Africa when they engage in the public lectures.

“We should utilize this lecture series to analyze the impact that global issues have on our national development programmes, and our peace and security,” Geingob said.

Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah, who doubles as the deputy prime minister and the international affairs minister said the lectures will touch on how Namibians can contribute to security and prosperity by engaging the international community. Enditem
