President Hifikepunye Pohamba has described the just-ended African Union Summit as a success, especially that it concluded the long overdue election of the chairperson of the AU Commission, who will be responsible for the day to day running of the 54-member organisation.
While at the AU, the Namibian leader did not fall short in articulating Namibia's stand on NEPAD, the Committe of Ten on the UN reform, the issue of boosting intra-Africa trade and the decades-old US economic blockade on Cuba.
After four days of an intense meeting at the African Union, which dealt with a number of challenges facing the continent, the Namibian leader left the Ethiopian Capital, Addis Ababa in the morning.
Before his departure from the Bole International Airport, he briefly exchanged pleasantries with his Gambian counterpart, who was also on his way home.
Arriving in Windhoek, the Head of State found several cabinet ministers and high ranking Government officials ready to welcome him back home.
They were led by Prime Minister, Nahas Angula, Trade and Industry Minister, Dr Hage Geingob, Justice Minister, Pendukeni Ivula-Ithana as well as Regional and Local Government, Housing and Rural Development Minister, Jerry Ekandjo.
Earlier on, the President spoke to NBC while on board to Windhoek about the conclusion of the continental body meeting.
