Geingob, who announced the ban on his Twitter page on Thursday, also directed a limit on monthly fuel consumption for public office holders.

The president said the decision was inspired by the “difficult period of COVID-19.”

“Government will not order a new vehicle fleet for the Executive and Public Office Bearers for the period 2020-2025,” he wrote.

“No new vehicles will be purchased for members of the executive and public office bearers in the Namibian government.”

He said the decision would save some 200 million Namibian dollars (US$10.7 million), which will be directed “to urgent priorities, specifically at a time when the country is dealing with the health and economic implications of COVID-19”.

Namibia with a population of 2.5 million people only has recorded 16 confirmed cases of coronavirus in the country.

KanyiDaily recalls that the Namibian Government had last month begun the transfer of money into its citizens bank accounts to ease the effect of coronavirus lockdown in the country.
