Chief Justice Peter Shivute visited Washington DC last week to attend an International Visitor Leadership Program coordinated by the US Department of State on the subject of judicial reform.
The Chief Justice was accompanied by Justice David Smuts of the High Court of Namibia and several officials from the Ministry of Justice as well as an official from the Office of the Prime Minister.
During a visit to the U.S. Supreme Court, Chief Justice Shivute was delighted to meet Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr, who gave a warm welcome to the Namibian delegation and graciously commended the Namibian Judiciary for its efforts and leadership in the area of judicial reform. Chief Justice Shivute said, “I was most grateful for the wonderful welcome that we received from both the Chief Justice of the United States and the representatives of the U.S. State Department.

“The visit created valuable opportunities to explore further cooperation between the Namibian Judiciary and the Judiciary of the United States across several areas, including continuing judicial education, court administration and management, and the promotion of judicial independence,” he added.
