Namibian Constitution now in Braille

WINDHOEK, 16 FEB (NAMPA) – The Namibian Constitution has been translated into Braille for the about 15 000 visually impaired Namibians.
Prime Minister Saara Kuugongelwa-Amadhila announced this in the National Assembly (NA) on Tuesday.
She said Namibians who are unable to see and read the constitution will now be able to read it and know their rights as a citizen of a democratic state.
She added that the Namibian Constitution will also be translated into other vernacular languages through the Office of the Auditor-General.
Copies of the braille version will be available at the Ministry of Information and Communication Technology.
Last year, the Office of the Ombudsman launched an audio version of the constitution for visually-impaired people during the 25th celebration of the Namibian Constitution.
The Namibian Federation of the Visually Impaired has about 15 000 registered members.
