Africa: Stop Sidelining Africa, Geingob Tells UN

President Hage Geingob yesterday said it is unsuitable that Africa remains rejected from the United Nations (UN) Security Council.

Geingob was tending to the leader of the UN’s General Assembly, Volkan Bozkır, in his memorial explanation .

The global body this year points its 75th anniversary.

“It is time that the United Nations Security Council’s representation reflects the current global geopolitical formations and security threats,” Geingob said.

He included: “In this regard, Africa is a capable partner, and, therefore, Africa should occupy her rightful position at the UN, in the interest of global peace and stability.”

Given the historical backdrop of the UN and the real factors of the current world, Geingob said it was inadmissible that Africa remains prohibited from the global body’s security council.

“The United Nations has always championed equality, and therefore Africa cannot continue to be sidelined.”

He, notwithstanding, expressed gratitude toward the worldwide body for leading harmony activities and freedom in Namibia.

“We are grateful that the United Nations was able to accompany us to independence and it was a proud day when on 21 March 1990 we received the instruments of power from secretary general Javier Pérez de Cuéllar to commence a new chapter in Namibia’s history,” Geingob said.
