Namibian president meets with Cuban parliamentary leader

Windhoek, Feb 25 (Prensa Latina) Namibian President Nangolo Mbumba met on Sunday with the president of the National People’s Power Assembly (Parliament) of Cuba, Esteban Lazo, at the State House of this African nation.

Lazo also met on Sunday with the founding father and first president of Namibia, Sam Nujoma, who thanked Cuba for its support for the independence of his country and the permanent solidarity with his people.


At the meeting, Nujoma ratified the close ties between both nations, the Cuban Parliament reported on its X account.

On Saturday, the Cuban parliamentary leader paid tribute to former Namibian President Hage G. Geingob at his state funeral.

When speaking alongside other world leaders at Geingob’s funeral ceremony, Lazo highlighted how since the news of his death, Cuba has expressed its gratitude towards the former president, who exhibited a brave, firm, independent and supportive stance for the Cuban Revolution.

This attitude was also reflected against the economic blockade imposed on Cuba by the United States for more than 60 years and on the occasion of other events that have affected the well-being of the Cuban people, he noted.
