The Ministry of Health and Social Services (MHHS) has denied allegations of misinformation surrounding Namibia’s involvement in negotiations at the World Health Organization (WHO) in Geneva, Switzerland.

The ministry has expressed concern over the potential impact of falsehoods on national interest and public sentiment.

The controversy arose following a press conference led by the leader of the Republican Party of Namibia Henk Mudge, earlier this month.

Mudge’s speech delved into concerns about the WHO’s proposed amendments to the International Health Regulations of 2005 and the introduction of a new pandemic treaty.

He asserted that the global health crisis, particularly the COVID-19 pandemic, was a deliberate and man-made event orchestrated by what he referred to as “Globalists” including figures like Bill Gates, George Soros and the Rockefeller Foundation in the United States of America.

Mudge raised questions about the handling of the pandemic in Namibia, including the government’s response, the enforcement of regulations and the administration of experimental drugs.

He further emphasised the alleged collusion between the Namibian government and the WHO, accusing them of acting against the well-being of the Namibian people.

“They have been working for decades on their evil agenda by which their priority is to reduce the population of the world and to achieve that they have derived a strategy to kill people in such a way that they will not be held accountable,” said Mudge.

In response, Ministry of Health Executive Director Ben Nangombe issued a public information note refuting the claims.

Nangombe highlighted Namibia’s active participation in the WHO as a member state and commitment to negotiating in the best interests of its people.

He said the ongoing negotiations, particularly those related to a pandemic treaty and amendments to the International Health Regulations of 2005, are conducted transparently, with broad engagement from relevant stakeholders.

Nangombe further emphasised that the ministry welcomes public scrutiny and questions but cautioned against misinformation campaigns that could mislead the public.

“Given its membership to the WHO and the duty under the Namibian Constitution to actively participate and negotiate in the best interests of its people, the Government of the Republic of Namibia cannot, as suggested by some public figures in the country, shy away from the negotiations currently underway at the WHO in Geneva. It should be clearly stated that there is no secrecy in the negotiations as alleged by some,” said Nangombe
