Former US President Bush visits President Geingob at State House

Former US President George W Bush paid a courtesy call on President Hage Geingob at State House a while ago.
The two leaders discussed the impact of the Millennium Challenge Account in Namibia.
Signed in 2008, the MCA Namibia Compact provided grant funding to the value of N$3 billion for public investments in education, tourism and agriculture. The programme aimed to reduce poverty through economic growth.
Bush congratulated President Geingob for the 98% implementation of the programme, saying Namibia met the requirements of the programme despite its ranking as an upper middle income country.
