The president of Namibia, President Hage Geingob on Thursday issued a bill placing a five-year ban on buying new cars for top politicians and government officials in support of the country’s fight against coronavirus.
In his statement, Hage Geingob said “has directed that the vehicle fleet of the Namibian government will not be renewed for the period 2020-2025,” presidential spokesperson Alfredo Hengari announced in a statement.
“No new vehicles will be purchased for members of the executive and public office bearers in the Namibian government.”
He said the decision would save some 200 million Namibian dollars (US$10.7 million), which will be directed “to urgent priorities, specifically at a time when the country is dealing with the health and economic implications of COVID-19”.
