African embassies in Namibia last week called for the dismantlement of intercontinental borders to nurture free trade on the continent.
The call was made by the Democratic Republic of Congo Ambassador to Namibia, H.E Kabobo Kwa Kimba during celebrations to mark Africa Day on Friday in Windhoek.
The event that was organised by the Nigerian Embassy was attended by various other ambassadors ran under the theme: Boosting Intra-Africa Trade.
 “Intra Africa Trade will require the removal of our common artificial boundaries and the relaxation of visa regimes, which should come under serious consideration,” HE Kwa Kimba said.
He also highlighted that this year’s theme is well in order, considering the continent’s riches.
“(It is) a very good theme for our countries considering our rich, natural, human and mineral resources such as forests, water, petroleum, flora and fauna,” he asserted.
Zimbabwean Ambassador to Namibia, HE Chipo Zindoga said celebrating the day was important because it fulfills the continent’s founding fathers’ wishes of a united Africa.
“As we celebrate this important day, we strive to fulfill our founding fathers’ vision of a United Africa,” said HE Zindoga.
The celebration at a local hotel was well-attended by country representatives served with an African bouquet of meals.
Entertainment was provided by Angolan and Congolese musical groups including retired kwasa kwasa artist, Papa Francois.
