Apostle Haruna Goroh from Jesus Centre
“I want to celebrate our honourable president, a man of vision and man of foresight, a man who understands how to work with people and at the age of 76 he is very strong. We want this nation to stand behind him and back him up. There should be no division along any lines. Namibia is one nation and that is what we fought for.
So, let us join hands; whether it is in politics, churches or the private sector, the prosperity of this nation will be decided by how many of us can join hands. The best gift we can give the president is to unite as one and put our difference and political affiliation aside.”

I want to use the words of Apostle Paul, when he said the following: ‘I wish you prosper in all things and be healthy as your soul prospers.”
