Refreshing Windhoek Lager comes with the rain
Earlier this week, the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of International Relations and Cooperation, Hon Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah (centre right) received almost 7700 bottles of Windhoek Lager from Namibia Breweries Ltd for distribution to the 31 Namibian foreign missions in celebration of the 27th Independence anniversary.
Namibia Breweries Managing Director, Wessie van der Westhuizen (centre left) presided with the Deputy Minister, Hon Maureen Hinda (left) and the Breweries’ Global Marketing Manager, René Duffy (right) witnessing the donation ceremony.
This Independence gift has become an NBL’s tradition. Every year, the brewer makes sure Namibia’s overseas diplomatic staff each receives a small token of a Namibian icon, Windhoek Lager.
Van der Westhuizen said “NBL is proud to once again share in the celebrations of Namibia’s Independence. We regard Windhoek Lager a befitting ambassador as it not only carries the spirit of Namibia but also the name of our beautiful capital city. We value the role of our respected Ambassadors as critical to the image of the country as they play a very important part in uplifting the name and positively positioning Namibia. Hence our commitment to making them feel a part of this celebration, and also bringing our fellow countrymen and women closer to home.”
Hon Nandi-Ndaitwah confirmed that Windhoek Lager is an iconic brand saying “Windhoek Lager is a big brand for Namibia and it has made Namibia’s Independence celebration popular at our missions abroad. Found in almost all corners of the globe and appreciated by every individual that consumes this proudly Namibian product, Windhoek Lager has become a very important trademark for us.”
“The presence of this brand at the Independence celebrations of the different Namibian embassies across the globe makes it even more special for our representatives on the other side while our guests always look forward to our Independence Day celebration to taste Windhoek Lager” she continued.
Hon Nandi-Ndaitwah promised that the donation will reach the missions on time for the Independence celebrations on 21 March.
