Namibia’s president and chairperson of the Southern African Development Community Hage Geingob said there was a need for unity in Africa in order for the continent to win the struggle for economic emancipation.

Geingob made the remarks in the 56th Africa day commemoration remarks on Saturday

“As we deepen our democratic institutions, strengthen our resolve to win the second struggle for the economic emancipation of the African continent, the unity of the African people and a commitment to pan-Africanism is even more urgent,” Geingob said.

He said the continent should work together to build a united peaceful and prosperous Africa.

“We are on a confident march, taking bolder steps towards the frontier of agenda 2063 and meeting the aspirations of the Africa we want. We should not relent in our determination to harness opportunities for the young people of Africa,” he said. Enditem
