The Namibia Press Agency, (NAMPA), was established in 1991 as a national news agency responsible for the distribution of local, regional and international news.

Associated Press

The AP is one of the largest and most trusted sources of independent newsgathering, supplying a steady stream of news to its members, international subscribers and commercial customers. AP is neither privately owned nor government-funded; instead, as a not-for-profit news cooperative owned by its American newspaper and broadcast members, it can maintain its single-minded focus on newsgathering and its commitment to the highest standards of objective, accurate journalism.

× FiLE-In this Wednesday, May 23, 2018 photo, white markers, each indicating a mass grave of about 150 people, are displayed on Hart Island in New York. On Monday, April 6, 2020, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said that officials are exploring the possibility of temporarily burying Coronavirus victims on Hart Island, a one-mile, limited access strip off the Bronx borough of New York that has long served as the city's potter's field. The mayor told TV station NY1 that under such a contingency plan bodies of COVID-19 victims would be buried individually -- not in mass graves -- so families could later reclaim them.
