Oshikoto mourns President Hage Geingob’s death


OMUTHIYA: The Oshikoto regional governor, Penda Ya Ndakolo has expressed his condolences to the First Lady, Monica Geingos, children, family, close friends, and the entire country on the passing on of President Hage Geingob on Sunday.

Ndakolo said in an interview with Nampa that Namibia lost a real leader who had the interests of the country at heart.

‘We appreciate his work and what he did for us during the liberation struggle of this country and after independence,’ he said.

Ndakolo noted that the late Dr Geingob worked during difficult times, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic and the several seasonal droughts experienced in the Oshikoto Region and elsewhere in the country.

Swapo Party Oshikoto regional coordinator Armas Amukwiyu said he is deeply saddened by the passing of the president of Swapo and the country at large.

‘He was my father, friend, my mentor, and my leader, so it deeply touched my heart to hear of his death,’ said Amukwiyu.

He called on Namibians to unite during this time of mou
rning, regardless of political background, to pay their respects to the late president.

‘I give my sympathy from the bottom of my heart to the wife, children, grandchildren, and the whole country at large,’ said Amukwiyu.

Oshikoto regional council chairperson, Samuel Shivute, said the president brought Namibians together under the ‘Harambee’ concept.

‘President Hage Geingob brought us together and he ruled during the most challenging era of our country, so we thank him. May his soul rest in eternal peace,’ Shivute said.

Oniipa Constituency councillor, Vilho Nuunyango said the passing on of the president has left a huge gap for Swapo members and the country at large.

‘He was a peaceful and strong man, he worked hard during his tenure, especially in the transformation of politics and he has experienced a lot of challenges,’ said Nuunyango.

Nuunyango also urged people to respect the president’s departure and encouraged all Swapo members to live in unity with a common purpose.
