President Uhuru Kenyatta today joined H.E. President Dr. Hage Geingob and the people of Namibia at the Independence Stadium in Windhoek for the country’s Independence Day celebrations.
President Kenyatta stated that Kenya remains steadfast and committed to continue working closely with Namibia and other countries on the continent to realize Africa’s goal of a peaceful and prosperous future.
The President pointed out that borders must never be used as an excuse for African Nations to hold back and forget the African spirit of Ubuntu. He noted that Africa remains stronger together.
He also commended Namibia on its policies that promote gender equality which have elevated women to decision making positions since the adoption of the 50/50 gender policy in 2013 that promotes the empowerment of African women.
President Kenyatta further called for the establishment of strong institutions in Africa with mechanisms of accountability and structures of effective governance as the only way to slay the beast of corruption and political patronage
