WINDHOEK, June 17 -- Namibia-based company, Swakop Uranium, whose major shareholder is the China General Nuclear Power Group, donated 100,000 Namibian dollars (8, 000 U.S. dollars) to the foundation of Namibia's former President Sam Nujoma for building a primary school at a local farm.

The funds expected to be used in building classrooms for the Etunda School, were handed over on Tuesday to Nujoma by a senior Chinese executive of the company.

The former president's foundation is funding two projects -- a primary school and a clinic -- being built at Etunda Farm.

Nujoma said last year that he will hand over the school and the clinic to the government once work on them are completed.

More than 200 pupils will be admitted in the school due to be completed later this year.
