Namibia’s president dies – level 3

09-02-2024 15:00

Following President Hage Geingob’s passing, Nangolo Mbumba assumed the role of interim president of Namibia.

Mbumba stated he wouldn’t run in the upcoming elections, adhering to his desire to serve as a school principal. This decision paves the way for Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah to run, potentially making her Namibia’s first female president. Mbumba’s humility contrasts with the typical power retention seen among African leaders. Namibia aims to lead in green energy initiatives, exemplified by its endeavors in hydrogen and minerals for clean energy.

Geingob’s legacy includes efforts to combat racial inequalities and promote green economy leadership, positioning Namibia as a global example of sustainability.

Difficult words: adhere (to believe in and follow the practices of), retention (the continued possession, use, or control of something), exemplified (shown as an example).

Who is Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah and what unique role might she play in Namibia's political landscape?
