Windhoek – The African Peer Review Mechanism (APRM) National Secretariat visited the Speaker of the National Assembly, Hon. Prof. Peter Katjavivi on Wednesday, 27 October 2021. The secretariat, led by its Chief Executive Officer, Ambassador Lineekela Mboti informed the Speaker that a team of reviewers from the continental body will be visiting Namibia to evaluate the country’s self- assessment report.
Namibia has completed its self-assessment report that is yet to be presented to the National Assembly. The country self-assessment report will then culminate into a National Plan of Action.
The African Peer Review Mechanism is a voluntary and self-monitoring mechanism initiative between African Union member states, Civil society and the private sector intended to address pertinent socio economic challenges and improve governance and best practices through self-monitoring of all aspects of governance. The review is centered on four thematic areas of democracy and political governance, economic governance and management, corporate governance and socio economic development.
Namibia joined the APRM in 2017.
