Prime Minister & 2 others // NANTU & 3 others in the High Court of Namibia before Justice Masuku.

Adv Corbett, on behalf of the Government, began leading argument this morning by making the Government’s position clear.

This case is not a matter of weighing citizen’s rights against each other-

the right to education vs the right to strike.

Instead the constitutional right to strike is recognised, respected and upheld, but the necessary deployment plan for a safe, peaceful strike needs to be put in place before the strike can commence.

Argument by NANTU, represented by Adv Heathcote, is still to be heard.

Public Address by H.E President Geingob at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government #GeingobForum

"Transparent processes, peaceful mechanisms for dispute resolution and fair institutions are essential for ensuring both stability and civil liberties in Namibia and neighboring countries"
