On Friday, September 24, 2021, the United States Ambassador to the United Nations, Ms. Linda Thomas-Greenfield, paid a courtesy visit to President Hage G. Geingob on the sidelines of the 76th session of the United Nations General Assembly. President Geingob emphasized the need for vaccine equity to ensure everyone is safe from the current situation where industrialized countries are talking about booster vaccines. Ambassador Thomas-Greenfield announced that the United States had donated 100,000 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, the shipment having arrived in Windhoek, Namibia. President Geingob thanked the United States for the vaccines.

President Geingob stressed the importance of the principle of sovereign equality and Namibia’s pursuit of an independent foreign policy. Underlining a common commitment to multilateralism, the two leaders underscored the centrality of the rule of law, processes, systems and institutions in governance.

President Geingob informed that Africa has gone through different waves of leadership, each characterized by my various sets of challenges. However, Africa today was markedly different, with a third wave of leaders placing more emphasis on democratic governance. “It is the African leaders who, through the African Union and regional organizations, condemn a coup and unconstitutional changes of government in member states,” said President Geingob.

Addressing the climate change crisis, the two leaders agreed that more needs to be done to address the climate emergency through stronger partnerships between the public and private sectors. The meeting highlighted the US Mega-Solar initiative in Southern Africa as an initiative with enormous potential for Namibia and the United States. The leaders also agreed on the need to fight discrimination, including reform and improvement of the United Nations.
