President, First Lady In Namibia For Presidential Inauguration

The inauguration of Dr. Geingob coincides with the 25th anniversary of Namibia’s independence.

The two events will be celebrated together at Windhoek’s Independence Stadium. 

At least 12 Heads of State will attend the ceremony where Dr. Geingob, who was the Prime Minister, will take over from President Hifikepunye Pohamba. 

Cabinet Secretaries Amina Mohamed and Engineer Michael Kamau accompanied the President.

PEACE KEEPING

The incoming president won in a landslide victory in November 2014, receiving an emphatic 86.7 percent of the vote. 

His party, SWAPO, trounced 15 other parties in the race for a Parliamentary majority. 

Kenya and Namibia have a special relationship as Kenyan forces played a major role in UN peacekeeping operations in the country. 

Even after the end of peacekeeping operations, the new government of Namibia asked Kenyan peacekeepers to stay on, so that they could train the Namibian military.

While in Namibia, President Kenyatta will open Kenya House, which will house the Kenyan Embassy. 

After the swearing in ceremony, President Kenyatta and other visiting heads will be hosted to a state luncheon by the new President.
