National Assembly Speaker, Peter Katjavivi declined to be dragged into the genocide deal, in which the Namibian and German governments purportedly reached a N$ 19 billion settlement. The Namibia press agency reports that approached by journalists outside Parliament on Wednesday, he said the genocide matter will be dealt with by Prime Minister Saara Kuugongelwa-Amadhila next week when the National Assembly resumes. Former Standard Bank chief executive, Vetumbuavi Mungunda meanwhile entered the genocide fray through a public statement, branding the agreement reached between the two governments as “laughable”, while last week, deputy chairperson of the Ovaherero Genocide Foundation Joyce Muzengua accused the government of “hijacking the genocide negotiations through disregard and pomposity”.
