April 25, 2006 (9:28 am) GMT
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have issued a plea asking for the privacy of their family unit

Really tired with the presence of paparazzo roaming around them as they wait for the birth of their first child, and finally issued a joint statement asking privacy for their family unity, so the Sunday Times of South Africa has reported. Saying that they love the country and enjoy their time in Namibia, the twosome also expressed their gratefulness to its citizen for the warm welcome they have received there. "To the local people who have been so kind and gracious, thank you for making us feel at home," they wrote. "As for the press, we kindly ask for privacy so that we can enjoy this beautiful country with our children."

Responding to the privacy plea, Namibian officials have begun to take action against a number of photographers who try to pry on the couple's every move, already ordered three French journalists along with those of the Sunday Times to leave the country or else face arrest. Concerning this matter, Namibian Prime Minister Nahas Angula encouragingly gave his support, feeling that the move was truly warranted. "This lady is expecting," he said to the Sunday Times of South Africa. "You guys are harassing her. Why don't you allow her some privacy? Harassment is not allowed in Namibia." Adding to this, he continued: "If a person says they don't want to be photographed then, of course, that person deserves protection."
