THE two-day State visit of Nigerian president Goodluck Jonathan has been postponed until further notice.
Jonathan was supposed to arrive yesterday.
A statement by the Minister of Presidential Affairs Albert Kawana said due to circumstances beyond his control, Jonathan has postponed his State visit to Namibia.
It is suspected that Jonathan's postponement of his first visit to Namibia was prompted by recent violence in northeast Nigeria, where over 40 people died in coordinated attacks by Islamic extremists armed with heavy machine guns.
It was the latest in a string of increasingly bloody attacks threatening peace in Africa's most populous nation.
Jonathan arrived in South Africa on Tuesday where he met with South African president Jacob Zuma and addressed the South African Parliament.
He travelled to South Africa with a large government delegation and was supposed to attend the 23rd World Economic Forum on Africa in Cape Town which ends today.
