Namibia Breweries Limited (NBL) once again reaffirmed their long standing relationship with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. NBL donated 330 cases of Windhoek Lager beer to the value of N$51,000 to all Namibian Embassies across the world in celebration of Namibia’s 25 years of Independence.

The donation was handed over by the NBL Managing Director, Wessie van der Westhuizen to the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah. The Ministry of Foreign affairs will ensure that the consignment is dispatched to the relevant diplomatic missions. At the occasion, van der Westhuizen said that although 25 years of Independence for a country could be described as relatively young it was evident that Namibia had made great strides over the years. “We are extremely proud to be part of the journey of a young democratic nation where peace and stability is enjoyed by all,” said van der Westhuizen. The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah in her address thanked NBL for its continued commitment to Namibia and her people. “In the past few years of my acceptance of your sponsorship, I have come to admire and appreciate your commitment as a corporate organization to the upliftment of our communities, which all other corporate entities should emulate. Above all, and most important, this product is used to market our country. Part of the Strategic Plan of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is to contribute to creating markets abroad for our national products in order to create employment at home,”she said.
