The Students Union of Namibia has called on President Hage Geingob to intervene immediately in the repatriation of Namibian students who managed to flee the war-zone Ukraine into neighbouring countries for temporary shelter. The union said that while it understands the Namibian non-alignment policy on international relations of being a friend to all and an enemy to none, it should not stop the government from taking radical steps towards the safety of the students. “Students’ lives cannot be politicised nor be taken for granted, the bureaucratic system in place is taking longer to offer amicable help,” it insisted.
