Namibian Envoy Endorses ED
President Mnangagwa is a visionary leader whose efforts in turning around Zimbabwe’s economic fortunes should be supported, a top envoy has said.
Namibian Ambassador to Zimbabwe Ms Balbina Pienaar said her country had confidence in Zimbabwe’s new administration.
She made the remarks after paying a courtesy call on Acting President Dr Constantino Chiwenga at his Munhumutapa Offices yesterday.
“The issue I came to reinforce is that Namibia is having so much confidence in the Government of the day under the leadership of His Excellency Cde Emmerson Dambudzo Mnangagwa,” she said.
“He is a very visionary leader, transformational.
“As a sister nation, we are quite impressed in the way the political transition was handled. This is really the best practice in Sadc and the entire world.
“It is quite important to emphasise that as a close ally of Zimbabwe, Namibia stands steadfast, supporting all the current efforts of the Government and the people of Zimbabwe.”
Ms Pienaar said existing relations between the two countries should be strengthened.
“The relations have been there for many years and it is a continuation of efforts, activities, programmes and projects on the table,” she said.
“In terms of new investments, during the official visit of President Hage Geingob here last year, he had a one-on-one with the business community, where we exchanged notes on business opportunities. Namibia is also open for business, we welcome our brothers and sisters from this side to enter into joint ventures.
