Supreme Court of Namibia

Namibia / Africa

The Supreme Court of Namibia is the highest court in the country’s judicial system. It is the court of last resort and the highest appellate court in the country.  A Supreme Court decision can only be reversed by an Act of Parliament that contradicts it, or by another ruling of the Supreme Court itself.  Namibia’s Supreme Court was founded on 21 March 1990, the day of Independence.  At its inception, the Supreme Court did not have its own building.  The Supreme Court building was built between 1994 and 1996 as an ‘imposing and functional building’ to represent ‘the integrity and soul of the Constitution’.  It was designed in a north African style to avoid resemblance of European colonial buildings, and it is Windhoek’s only building erected post-independence in an African style of architecture.  The substantial building was constructed to contain two courtrooms, four offices for justices, and a law library on the first floor.
