Nangolo Mbumba told media houses that he will finish Dr. Hage Geingob’s term and will not be on the ballot.
“I am not going to be around for the elections. So don’t panic,” Mbumba said.
“You are telling yourself stories already. I will be serving you for the remainder of Geingob’s term in office. We understand one another. Let’s support one another,” Mbumba added.
“If I were to say all the things I could remember, how I met Hage Geingob in New York in 1967. He was already the leader of the students.
Nangolo Mbumba said this after he was sworn in as Namibia’s 4th President. Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah was also sworn in as Vice President.
The late president Hage Geingob is remembered for funding and pushing for the establishment of hydrogen projects in Namibia.
