Hon House Chairperson, I move without notice:
That the House -
1) notes that the Namibian President, Hifikepunye Pohamba, has won the 2014 Ibrahim Prize for Achievement in African Leadership;
2) also notes that he is the first African leader deemed worthy of this honour since 2011;
3) recognises that the prize is awarded to democratically elected African leaders who excel in governance, and who step down from office at the end of their term;
4) further notes that the annual prize was first awarded in 2007, when the late President Nelson Mandela was named the inaugural honorary laureate;
5) congratulates the Namibian President, Hifikepunye Pohamba, on receiving this exceptional honour; and
6) wishes him a peaceful and well-earned retirement as President of Namibia on 21 March 2015.
