President Paul Kagame of Rwanda has congratulated Namibian President on his re-election.
President Kagame’s congratulatory message reads “Congratulations to my brother & friend President @hagegeingob on your well deserved re-election. We look forward to further strengthening the ties between our two nations and wish you and the people of Namibia continued success and prosperity”
Namibia’s President Hage Geingob has been re-elected for a second term, the country’s electoral commission says.
Mr Geingob polled 56.3% in Wednesday’s election, well ahead of his nearest rival Panduleni Itula with 29.4%.
However, Mr Geingob’s tally was well down from the 87% with which he won his first term in 2014.
He went on social media to thank Namibians for returning him to office, promising to bring tangible improvements to their lives.
His Swapo party has ruled Namibia for nearly three decades since it gained independence from South Africa.4
