PRESIDENT Nangolo Mbumba once again honoured late President Hage Geingob’s constitutional legacy, emphasizing that the late president consistently encouraged Namibians to internalise the Namibian Constitution as a living document.

“In mourning, we should draw solace from the fact that President Geingob always encouraged Namibians from all walks of life to internalise the Constitution of the Republic of Namibia as a living document. As a young democracy, which has traversed different trials, including the untimely death of President Geingob, a sitting Head of State, we have demonstrated that our Constitution is a sacrosanct document,” President Mbumba said.

He made these remarks during the observance of Constitution Day, which is celebrated annually on 9 February. President Mbumba highlighted that this year’s commemoration, themed “Celebrating Unity, Liberty, and Justice,” coincides with the passing of President Geingob, who served as the as Chairperson of the Constituent Assembly.

“We are reminded of the remarkable and inspiring journey we have walked under his able guidance and stewardship, as Chairperson of the Constituent Assembly, Founding Prime Minister, and third President of the Republic of Namibia. Indeed, a dark cloud is hanging over the people of the Land of the Brave who have lost a revolutionary and visionary leader who, as the third President, worked diligently to champion the fundamental rights and freedoms that are entrenched in the Namibian Constitution,” President Mbumba said.

He assured that he too is committed to upholding the constitution and serving all Namibians in the pursuit of shared prosperity, as affirmed by the Oath of Office he took on 4 February. President Mbumba further urged Namibians to also reaffirm their dedication to unity, peace, and justice, emphasizing the need for inclusive economic development.

“In celebrating Constitution Day, all Namibians should be proud of the peaceful and stable country we live in, which is the envy of many nations across the globe. Namibia is a vibrant democracy, with a government with a strong resolve to guarantee the fundamental rights and freedoms that are the prerequisite for a peaceful, united, and prosperous country,” the president added.
