The visiting son to Namibiaâ€™s founding father, Dr Sam Nujoma, Honourable Utoni Nujoma who paid a courtesy call on Acting President Joice Mujuru, has pledged his countryâ€™s support in helping Zimbabwe retain its former bread basket status in the SADC region.
In an interview with ZBC News, Honourable Nujoma, who is also that countryâ€™s Foreign Affairs Minister, said the two countries share a great history that should be preserved.
On the illegal economic sanctions imposed on Zimbabwe by Britain and its western allies, Honourable Nujoma called for their unconditional removal.
Nujoma said: “Namibia and Zimbabwe have worked together on various issues….”
The Acting President applauded the visit as a gesture that will keep the two SADC nations together despite interference from imperialistâ€™s countries.
â€œThese two countries have always been together and some people when they hear us talk about it, they think we are drumming our own story. But itâ€™s a story that shows how important it is for the two to remain together, to remain intact and to understand each other,” said Cde Mujuru.
Nujomaâ€™s delegation also includes a group of Namibian business people seeking for investment opportunities.
Harare and Windhoek relations date back to the days of the liberation struggle.
