Original Headline:  Commonwealth announcement
Detailed description:  LONDON — Namibia will be admitted to the Commonwealth as its 50th member on gaining independence from South Africa on March 21, the Commonwealth Secretariat said Monday. "Namibia . . . will bring further strengths to the Commonwealth both generally and in the special context of the new prospects for the resolution of longstanding problems throughout southern Africa," Commonwealth Secretary General Shridath Ramphal said. The Commonwealth grew out of the vast British empire of the 19th and early 20th centuries and unites some of the world's richest and poorest countries. Commonwealth members cooperate in economic development, trade, finance, agriculture, education and science.
