Namibia swears-in new Prez Nangolo Mbumba


Namibia swears-in new Prez Nangolo Mbumba

Nangolo Mbumba has been inaugurated as Namibia’s new president just hours after announcing the death of his predecessor, Hage Geingob. Geingob, aged 82, passed away on Sunday while undergoing medical treatment for cancer in Windhoek.

Mbumba, who served as vice-president, paid tribute to Geingob as a “liberation icon” and assumed the role of president until the upcoming elections later this year. Geingob, a key figure in the country’s independence struggle, had been in political positions since Namibia gained independence in 1990.

Despite initial popularity, his presidency faced challenges such as a stagnant economy, corruption scandals, and declining public support. Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah, currently serving as vice-president, will be the first female president if she succeeds in the November elections.


There is a good reason why you should support the African Editors. Not everyone can afford to pay for news right now. That is why we keep our journalism open for everyone to read, including in Ghana. If this is you, please continue to read for free. But if you are able to, then there are three good reasons to support us today.

1. Our quality, journalism is a scrutinising force at a time when the rich and powerful are getting away with more and more.

2. We are independent and have no billionaire owner pulling the strings, so your money directly powers our reporting.

3. It doesn’t cost much, and takes less time than it took to read this message.

Help power the African Editors' journalism for the years to come, whether with a small sum or a larger one. If you can, please support us on a monthly basis from just 1 Ghana Cedi through mobile money number: 0599896099/ +23359989609 and you can be rest assured that you’re making a big impact every single month in support of open, independent journalism.
