Former Swapo Party Secretary General Nangolo Mbumba was sworn in as the new Vice President (VP) of Namibia by Chief Justice Peter Shivute at the statehouse on Monday. 

Mbumba was appointed as the Vice President by President Hage Geingob last week following the voluntary resignation of VP Nickey Iyambo due to ill health.  

Speaking to the media at the swearing in ceremony Mbumba said that he is honored that the president has appointed him as the VP.

“The president could have chosen any other party member but he chose me. From now on for me it is work, work and work all the way. I will take every assignment that I will be assigned in my capacity as the VP very seriously,” he said. 

He added that he has served the party for a long time and that his appointment as VP did not come as a surprise. Mbumba said the new position is just another assignment as a senior member of the ruling party. 

The ceremony was attended by senior government officials and Mbumba was accompanied by his family.
