President Hage Geingob has called on fellow leaders within SADC, particularly the region’s organ on politics, defence and security cooperation to take decisive action in addressing issues of insecurity in the region. The New Era newspaper reports that Geingob during the 40th SADC ordinary summit through a virtual platform, said that “Without peace, development does not take place.” Geingob said the pillars of industrial development and market integration, infrastructure development – and importantly, social and human capital development will not become a reality in the absence of a foundation of peace and security in the region.
