Namibia disappointed that Jackson visit a hoax

SHARE Namibia disappointed that Jackson visit a hoax

Namibian government officials were surprised to learn that Michael Jackson wouldn't be arriving Friday as they had thought.

An American organization claiming to represent Jackson, St. Louis-based Adventure in Africa Tours, had sent a letter to President Sam Nujoma saying the singer planned to visit Namibia as part of a 12-day African cultural tour.

A meeting was scheduled for Jackson with the president at noon, Nujoma's personal assistant, Andre Hashiyana, said Friday.

Jackson spokeswoman Raymone K. Bain noted that Jackson couldn't leave the United States because he had turned in his passport to Santa Barbara County prosecutors in California as a condition of his release after he pleaded innocent to child molestation charges.
