President Hage Geingob once again raised concern over absolute laws in the country, stating that laws that are racist or discriminatory should no longer be accommodated in Namibia. Geingob, who was speaking at the virtual official opening of the 5th Session of the 7 Parliament on 8 February was referring to the Repeal of Obsolete Laws Act, 2018 (Act 21 of 2018). The Obsolete Laws Bill, which is set to be tabled throughout 2022, will provide for the repeal of certain obsolete laws many of which are discriminatory on the grounds of gender, race, colour, ethnic origin, religion, creed as well as social and economic status.
