THE Namibian Government in a proclamation set out new regulations that will be in effect during Stage 2 of the gradual lifting of lockdown measures under the State of Emergency.
President Hage Geingob, during a briefing at State House at the start of the long weekend, introduced the new staged lifting of lockdown measures and said that the State of Emergency will remain in place until September.
The stringent lockdown measures of Stage 1 of the lockdown measures were lifted on Tuesday, 5 May 2020.
The good news under the directives is that the expiry of all vehicle licences have been postponed until 30 days after the period of lockdown ends.
