The Executive Director of the Ministry of Health and Social Services, Ben Nangombe, urged nurses to carry out their work with love, diligence, and care.

Ben Nangombe made the appeal during an early International Nurses Day celebration in the capital.

NUDO Leader Utjiua Muinjangue accuses Germany of discrimination 


The leader of NUDO accused Germany of discrimination after that country refused to renegotiate its offer of €1 billion for the 1904–08 Nama/OvaHerero genocide.

Utjiua Muinjangue says Germany has created a precedent by agreeing to demands for renegotiating compensation for crimes against humanity and therefore should do so with Namibia as well.

Muinjangue cited as an example an order by Konrad Adenauer, a former German chancellor, to re-negotiate settlements with Jewish groups as a stipend for atrocities committed during the Holocaust.
