Johannesburg - President Jacob Zuma on Tuesday congratulated Dr Hage Geingob for successfully winning the Namibian elections, the department of international relations said.

Geingob, leader of the Swapo party, was elected as the president of Namibia during the country's presidential and parliamentary elections that took place on Friday.

He won 4.74% more votes than in the last elections in 2009.

Zuma congratulated the people of Namibia for conducting "peaceful, credible and free and fair elections".

"The successful elections in Namibia attest to the stability and strength of democracy in this Southern African country, he said in a statement.

Zuma said South Africa would continue its mutually beneficial co-operation with Namibia.

"South Africa and Namibia enjoy strong, warm and fraternal relations that are characterised by regular and increasing interaction at all levels."
