Tribute to the late President Hage Gottfried Geingob

A beautiful and very touching Ceremony indeed took place today 25th February 2024 in Windhoek, Namibia for the late President HE Dr. Hage Gottfried Geingob’s Funeral. Hage Gottfried Geingob …the one who arrived ( Hage) the God’s Friend ( Gottfried) fulfilled his mission on earth serving his country and his fellow Namibians without distinctions. Yet keeps being the Light to Namibia, to Africa and to the Men and Women of Peace, Justice and Solidarity around the World. 

On his death he truly United his people, spreading his unique brotherly Love, calling for forgiveness and inclusivity, and to look at the future with Hope, inspiring Namibians keeping on building a strong Nation with Harmony and Happiness.

As HE used to say, Inclusivity spell Unity, Liberty, Justice and Harmony…Exclusivity spell conflict….. 

As pronounced by the former First Lady Madam Monika Geingos in her very moving speech “ Hage was a old soul with a youthful spirit “….” he was a leader not a follower”!

Proud to be part of the History of this fantastic country!

Proud to be once invited to become the Honorary Consul of Namibia to Portugal!

Long life to Namibia with so strong foundations!

Fellow Namibians,

It is with utmost sadness and regret that I inform you that our beloved Dr. Hage G. Geingob, the President of the Republic of Namibia has passed on today, Sunday 4 February 2024 at around 00h04 at Lady Pohamba Hospital where he was receiving medical treatment from his medical team. At his side, was his dear wife Madame Monica Geingos and his children.

His medical team, as I informed the nation only yesterday has been trying its utmost best to ensure that our President recovers. Regrettably,notwithstanding the team’s spirited effort to save his life, sadly, fellow Namibians, President Geingob passed on.

Fellow Namibians,

The Namibian nation has lost a distinguished servant of the people, a liberation struggle icon, the chief architect of our constitution and the pillar of the Namibian house. At this moment of deepest sorrow, I appeal to the nation to remain calm and collected while the Government attends to all necessary state arrangements, preparations and other protocols. Further announcements in this regard will be made.

While keeping the President’s bereaved family, and you, dear fellow Namibians, in our thoughts and prayers, Cabinet will convene with immediate effect in order to make the necessary state arrangements in this regard.

May the Soul of our beloved Dr Hage G. Geingob Rest in Eternal Peace.
