Pretoria – President Cyril Ramaphosa has conveyed heartfelt condolences to the people of Namibia following the sad demise of Namibian President Hage Gottfried Geingob earlier today. President Geingob, a revered leader and steadfast partner to South Africa and the region, passed away after a battle with cancer, leaving behind a legacy of dedication and service.

In a solemn tribute, President Ramaphosa remarked, “On behalf of the Government and people of South Africa, I extend deep condolences to the Government and people of Namibia, and particularly to Madame Monica Geingos, the First Lady, and to all family, friends, and comrades affected by this profound loss.”

Acting President Dr Nangolo Mbumba officially announced the passing of President Geingob, plunging the nation into a period of mourning as they grapple with the death of a figure central to Namibia’s political landscape.

During these trying moments, President Ramaphosa also extended his sympathies to Acting President Mbumba, the Namibian Cabinet, and members of the Southwest Africa People’s Organization (SWAPO), the political party which President Geingob has long been associated with.

President Ramaphosa recalled, “I reflect on the privilege granted to me in October 2023 when I was hosted by President Geingob and the Namibian Cabinet. Our discussions were infused with President Geingob’s fervent belief in a united future and heightened cooperation for the prosperity of our people.”

Namibia is set to hold elections later in the year, echoing the political cycle faced by South Africa, signifying a critical period for both nations to continue upon the path of growth and partnership—a mutual goal deeply shared by President Geingob.

As South Africa joins Namibia in grief, President Ramaphosa further honored the remarkable life and contributions of President Geingob, acknowledging his role as a formidable leader in Namibia’s freedom from colonial rule and his influential position in fostering solidarity with the people of South Africa throughout their struggle for liberation.

“The loss of a comrade in struggle and a close partner in our era of democracy fills us with a sense of gratitude mingled with sorrow. President Geingob’s passing is not just Namibia’s loss but a loss for the entire region and all those committed to the values of freedom and mutual respect,” stated President Ramaphosa.

With flags flying at half-mast across South African government buildings, the nation mourns alongside their Namibian counterparts, paying respect to a leader whose life’s work was the advancement and well-being of his people.
