Event

Demonstrators are set to rally in Windhoek on Saturday, November 21, to call for an end to alleged corruption and the appointment of a new Prosecutor General. Participants will reportedly gather at 10:00 (local time) and will march from the Katutura Youth Centre. Related demonstrations are due to take place in other major urban centers.

The Affirmative Repositioning activist group has criticized the perceived lack of transparency in appointing a Prosecutor General and the shortlisting of a candidate with alleged links to the ruling South-West Africa People's Organization (SWAPO) party.

A heightened security presence and associated disruptions should be anticipated in the vicinity of the rally. Clashes between security forces and protesters cannot be ruled out.

Advice

Those in Windhoek are advised to monitor developments, avoid all protests as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities and their home governments.
