    Namibia farmers face land grab By Christopher Munnion in Johannesburg (Filed: 16/11/2004) Namibia's white farmers were braced for a Zimbabwe-style land grab after polls opened following the retirement of President Sam Nujoma. Voters among the 1.8 million people queued outside polling booths yesterday at the start of two days of voting which is certain to see the ruling South-West African People's Organisation (Swapo) returned to power, probably with an increased majority. A smiling Mr Nujoma, who unsuccessfully sought to change the constitution so that he could seek a third term, was one of the first to cast his vote. "Namibians...

    PRESIDENT Sam Nujoma told over 400 delegates at the Namibia Public Workers Union (Napwu) Congress on Friday to unite and support Zimbabwe. "Today it is Zimbabwe, tomorrow it is Namibia or any other country. We must unite and support Zimbabwe. We cannot allow imperialism to take over our continent again. We must defend ourselves," Nujoma told delegates gathered at the Namib High School. He said he had not heard any union member in Namibia protesting the recent action of the British government when they stopped a Zimbabwean deputy minister from passing through Britain on his way to a conference for...

    WINDHOEK, Namibia (Reuters) - Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva's efforts to befriend Africa hit a jarring note when he praised Namibia's capital city as being so clean it didn't seem African. Lula, who presents himself as a champion of the world's poor, was speaking Friday in Windhoek on the fourth leg of an African tour. "I'm surprised because if you arrive in Windhoek, it doesn't seem like you're in an African country. Few cities of the world are so clean and beautiful as Windhoek," said Lula, flanked by Namibian President, Sam Nujoma, as he said farewell to the...

    NAMIBIA’S President Sam Nujoma, who stunned delegates to the Earth Summit in Johannesburg last week with his unbridled attack on Tony Blair and all-out support for Robert Mugabe, seems bent on repeating the Zimbabwean leader’s anti-white and anti-farmer crusade in his own country. In the past fortnight Nujoma, 73, has sacked Hage Geingob, a relative moderate who has been prime minister since independence and — having previously altered the constitution to allow himself a third term —is encouraging activists of his ruling South West African People’s Organisation (Swapo) to nominate him for a fourth term. Nujoma has ordered the expropriation...
