Appeal Court judgment overturning High Court ruling to find that an application for Namibian citizenship on the basis of marriage could be rejected, on the grounds that the applicant’s residence in Namibia was not regularised by the immigration authorities. However, the court stated, on grounds of applicant’s good record, « It is, therefore, hoped that this adverse judgment notwithstanding, the relevant authorities would accord a sympathetic reception to his possible application, if he cares to make one, for regularising his residence in conformity with the law. »
