The President of Namibia, Hage Geingob, has rejected the offer of 10 million euros that Germany made as compensation for crimes during the colonial era, and considered it “unacceptable”.
Geingob again rejected the German offer on Tuesday, which he had already rejected earlier this year, adding that it was “unacceptable”, according to his spokesman Alfredo Hengari, quoted by the local newspaper “The Namibian”.
Nevertheless, the African president ordered his team to continue negotiations with the German authorities. “We remain firmly in the conclusion of this key mission,” he confirmed on Twitter.
Geingob also announced the creation of a special committee within the government to work with the National Planning Commission to identify and quantify the projects to be carried out in the seven regions where the victims of the genocide live.
