Namibia faces poverty two decades after independenceListen /
Inequalities persist in Namibia 20 years after independence, according to a United Nations independent expert on extreme poverty and human rights.
Magdalena Sepúlveda visited Namibia from 1 to 8 October to collect first-hand information on the situation of people living in extreme poverty in the Southern African country.
During her mission, she met with the authorities to learn about what they have done to improve the situation.
To find out more about the situation of poverty in Namibia, UN Radio's Derrick Mbatha spoke to Ms. Sepúlveda on the line to Geneva.
