Geingob celebrates Ghana’s independence – The Namibian


PRESIDENT Hage Geingob has congratulated the government of Ghana on the 66th anniversary of the country’s independence.

Ghana, formerly the Gold Coast, was the first country south of the Sahara to gain independence from British colonial rule, on 6 March 1957.

“The people of Namibia will forever be indebted to our brothers and sisters in Ghana for their courageous support during our liberation struggle,” Geingob said in a short statement.

He said Namibians received material and emotional support from “this great sister country” and are galvanised by the clarion call of the founding president of Ghana, Kwame Nkrumah, who said: “The independence of Ghana is meaningless unless it is linked to the total liberation of the African continent.”

“On this day we join the people of Ghana in their celebration of freedom and independence,” he said.
