This paper attempts to examine President Hage Geingob’s rhetoric on the adoption of “Harambee Prosperity Plan” (HPP). The paper will analyse how the President’s discourse shape Namibia’s future. This analysis is largely drawn from the document “Namibian Government's Action Plan towards Prosperity for All”.The content of HPP can also be found in paragraph 32-61 of President Hage Geingob’s second State of the Nation Address.It is important to note that discourse does not need to be major or universal in scope to produce effects. As part of the role of rhetorical critic of public discourse, the analysis and assessment concentrate on Geingob’s HPP in his position as the president of the Republic of Namibia.
