Geingob to tap into Nujoma, Pohamba's wisdom

Incoming president Hage Geingob has announced that his predecessors Sam Nujoma and Hifikepunye Pohamba will serve on a President Council with him, along with selected former PMs and deputy PMs. Geingob has also appointed his two rivals at the 2012 Swapo elective congress - Jerry Ekandjo and Pendukeni Iivula-Ithana - among eight presidentially-nominated MPs for the country's new parliament. There was, however, no announcement today about who would occupy the sought after vice-president post.
