SUBJECT: NAMIBIA RESPONSE ON DEATH OF GEORGE FLOYD

The Ministry of International Relations and Cooperation has been following with great concern the events surrounding the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

As victims of institutionalised and systemic racism until three decades ago, the government and people of Namibia express deep outrage and condemn the brutal murder of George Floyd by US Police. The government of Namibia expresses condolences with George Floyd’s family and loved ones.

The Government of Namibia expresses its solidarity with the African-American sisters and brothers and calls on all to exercise restraint in venting their legitimate and justified anger.

Racism is a crime against humanity and should have no place in any society anywhere in the world. We call on the government of the United States to deploy all efforts at ensuring that the rights and human dignity of all its citizens, including in particular the African-Americans and all other minorities are upheld, respected and protected under law.
