FNCC, NTN and NAGN close in face of Covid 19

Namibian social gathering and recreational facilities close off for the public.

The Franco Cultural Center of Namibia (FNCC), National Theatre of Namibia (NTN) as well as the National Arts Gallery of Namibia (NAGN) have all closed their doors in the light of the infectious coronavirus outbreak that has spread across the globe with no expectation of Namibia.

In a statement shared on their social mediums, the FNCC has suspended their language classes as well as cultural and entertainment activities until 14 April.

The NTN has postponed all rehearsals and plays and all activities that have been set to take place until 24 April while the NAGN in a statement said they will strive to make their services available online.

This is in line with precautionary measures taken by the government amidst the outbreak of the coronavirus which has already claimed more than 4500 lives around the world.

This announcement follows the cancellation of the country’s 30 Independence celebrations as well as a number of concerts lined up as part of these celebrations.
