Former Ghana’s High Commissioner to Namibia, Abdul Rahman Haruna-Attah, has revealed that there’s not a single Ghanaian hustler in Namibia struggling to make ends meet in that country.
He told Starr FM that Namibia has some of Ghana’s world-class professionals who are excelling in their chosen fields of endeavors.
“There are only quality Ghanaians in Namibia no hustlers…Their immigration is very tight you just can’t get up and go to Namibia and hustle on the streets and sell iced water or second-hand clothing. Some of the top Ghanaians we had there was Prof. Philip Odonkor, when I was there he was the Associate Dean of the Medical School. There was Prof. Balore who was the Head of the Law School in Namibia, I don’t know if he’s still there. Then there was Mr. Amoo he was at the Business school and so forth. And we had the younger Doctors like, Dr. Quayeson who’s a top surgeon at their Central Hospital, Dr. Fynn who’s a leading Radiologist and so we had that kind of Ghanaians there in Namibia.”
The veteran Journalist added that these Ghanaian professionals in Namibia are lifting high the flag of Ghana and are held in high esteem.
The Republic of Namibia is a country in southern Africa. Its western border is the Atlantic Ocean; it shares land borders with Zambia and Angola to the north, Botswana to the east and South Africa to the south and east.
Although it does not border Zimbabwe, less than 200 metres of the Zambezi River separates the two countries. Namibia gained independence from South Africa on 21 March 1990, following the Namibian War of Independence. Its capital and largest city is Windhoek.
Namibia, the driest country in Sub-Saharan Africa.
Namibia has a population of 2.6 million people and a stable multi-party parliamentary democracy. Agriculture, herding, tourism and the mining industry – including mining for gem diamonds, uranium, gold, silver, and base metals – form the basis of its economy. The large, arid Namib Desert has resulted in Namibia being overall one of the least densely populated countries in the world.
