Founding President Sam Nujoma on Saturday received an award from the Kemet Boutros Ghali Foundation in Egypt, Cairo for his outstanding achievements in the field of Diplomacy for Peaceful Conflict Resolution and Strengthening of Cooperation and Peace between civilisations. Nampa reports that in his acceptance speech, Nujoma who thanked the foundation for the honour noted that the theme of the foundation, ‘for Peace and Knowledge’, is important, especially in Africa, and resonates well with the African Union’s wish to silence the guns on the African continent. Nujoma stated that he was proud to be associated with the name Dr Boutros Boutros Ghali, who was the first African to serve as UN Secretary-General in 1992, a period of great global challenges that faced the UN Organisation.
