The University of Namibia’s (UNAM) Health Sciences Campus in Windhoek was on Wednesday renamed after President Hage Geingob.
UNAM Vice Chancellor, Professor Lazarus Hangula, said although the campus is still in its early stages, it has already made significant impact nationally and regionally.
Hangula said Geingob has contributed to the growth and development of Namibia, the southern African region and the world at large, not only as Namibia’s Founding Prime Minister or Minister of Trade and Industry, but also as president.
“His Excellency’s contribution to Namibia is not confirmed to his role in the proto- and post-independence Namibia’s politics. Geingob is also known for the important role he played as a petitioner at the UN and also in academia where he served as the one and only Namibian Director of the United Nations Institute for Namibia (UNIN), in Lusaka, Zambia, that trained the core of the Namibian cadres of the nascent Namibian state,” Professor Hangula said.
