Windhoek The Speaker of the National Assembly of Namibia-Peter Katjavivi on Monday reaffirmed that the country will ensure that education rights for every child are protected.

Speaking at the COVID-19 Communication Centre, Katjavivi said all children with disabilities will be getting online classes as face to face classes are set to resume on the 3rd of June this year.

He said the government is improving efficiency by working together with the Ministry of Education, Arts and Culture as well as the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) to make sure that children with disabilities are educated and no child discriminations.

“The government will ensure the best interests of every child and promote the children's survival and development as well as promoting participation. The UNICEF and United Nations are working together to support the collection of relevant data and help design programs and to support children registration in African countries. They are committed to ensure that every child benefits from all the social benefits,” said Katjavivi.

Katjavivi urged all the stakeholders that are involved to help the nation on this invisible enemy COVID-19 to continue this important mission as it is highly appreciated.

Meanwhile, the 1st of June 2020 marks the last day of stage 2 of the state of emergency in Namibia.
