Moment of silence observed for President Geingob at Iitanga village

A moment of silence was observed at Iitanga village in the Okaku Constituency during the handover of brickmaking equipment on Tuesday as a tribute to President Hage Geingob. Geingob passed away at a hospital in Windhoek in the early hours of Sunday. Oshana Governor, Elia Irimari, asked for a minute of silence in honour of the late Geingob, describing him as a true son of the soil and a people's person. 'President Geingob's legacy will continue to inspire generations to come, from his efforts in promoting social and economic development, to his commitment to fostering unity and inclusivity,' he said. He added that during this difficult time his office offers its support and condolences to former First Lady Monica Geingos, and the entire Geingob family, as well as to all Namibians who mourn the loss of their beloved leader. Geingob served as Namibia's Prime Minister from 1990 to 2002 and again from 2012 to 2015. He also served as Minister of Trade and Industry between 2008 and 2012. Source: The Namibia Press Agency
