Namibia’s Deputy Prime Minister Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah is edging closer to becoming the country’s first female president.

President Hage Geingob said the country now has a female comrade who may take over the presidency of the republic.

Nandi-Ndaitwah has just been elected as vice-president of the governing party Swapo, which has been in power since independence in 1990 and has won every election with a large majority.

This makes her the frontrunner to succeed President Geingob, who will be stepping down, as Swapo’s presidential candidate for the 2024 elections.
