Windhoek — Zimbabwean President Emmerson Mnangagwa is scheduled to pay a one-day courtesy Seek Advice From to Namibia on Monday next week to, amongst others, hang bilateral talks with his Namibian counterpart, Dr Hage Geingob.

The Namibian presidency confirmed the Talk Over With to Namibia by way of Mnangagwa – who ascended to the presidential throne in November 2017 – following the resignation of then president Robert Mugabe.

Namibia’s two former presidents, Sam Nujoma and Hifikepunye Pohamba, attended Mnangagwa’s inauguration in Harare remaining yr and in addition paid a courtesy Seek Advice From to Mugabe, who had just given up power days earlier.

Mugabe resigned after weeks of uncertainty in Zimbabwe, catapulted by using his sacking of Mnangagwa as one in all his vice-presidents, in what was once widely pronounced as a covert attempt by way of the veteran statesman to pave the way in which for his wife Grace to be triumphant him as president.

Mnangagwa will also use the Visit to formally introduce himself as Zimbabwean president to President Geingob, who also serves as deputy chairperson of SADC.

“The Discuss With is being conducted in the hobby of additional strengthening the existing very good bilateral members of the family between Namibia and Zimbabwe and to consider new that you can imagine areas of cooperation,” said Albertus Aochamub, press secretary in the Namibian presidency.

Trade between Namibia and Zimbabwe generated only N$24 million (about US$1.9 million) in 2016, a scenario that President Geingob mentioned used to be unacceptable.

“This Is partially because our Alternate patterns had been aligned to service the requirements of former colonial powers and partly because many African nations primarily produce an identical items, mainly agricultural and mineral commodities,” Geingob said in a commentary delivered all through the legitimate opening of the Zimbabwe World Exchange Truthful closing 12 months.
