Akufo-Addo pays final respects to Hage Geingob

President Akufo-Addo on Sunday (15 April 2023) paid his final respects to the late president of Namibia Hage Geingob at his burial service at Windhoek.

Geingob died in hospital on 4 February, with his deputy, Nangolo Mbumba, sworn in as his successor soon afterwards.

His death led to a surge in patriotism, with Namibians from across the political divide coming together to mourn.

Thousands of people – many carrying the Namibian flag and draped in the national colours – lined the streets as his casket was driven through Windhoek on Friday and Saturday.

Sharing the news on Facebook on Monday (26 February), said Geingob’s legacy will endure as a beacon of inspiration for future generations.

“On Sunday, 25 February 2024, together with my beautiful Rebecca, I was in Windhoek to attend the funeral of the late President of the Republic of Namibia, His Excellency Hage Geingob.

“Freedom fighter, politician, educationist, public servant, two-time Prime Minister, third President of Namibia, Hage Geingob, was not only a respected leader but also a dedicated servant of his people.”

“His vision, commitment, and tireless efforts to advance the well-being of Namibians have left an indelible mark on the nation’s history. His leadership, characterized by wisdom and compassion, will be remembered not only within the borders of Namibia but also across the African continent. His legacy will endure as a beacon of inspiration for future generations, and the impact of his contributions to the progress and development of Namibia will be felt for years to come,” Akufo-Addo said.
