Kampala | On February 24, Dr Ruhakana Rugunda led a delegation from Uganda to represent President Yoweri Museveni at the state funeral of former Namibian President, Dr. Hage Geingob.

Dr Hage died aged 82 on February 2, at a national hospital in Windhoek.

Rugunda later delivered a message from President Museveni to President Dr Nangolo Mpumba.

“We recalled the strong historical ties and solidarity between Uganda and Namibia.

The untimely death of President Geingob robbed Africa of a great leader, a Pan Africanist and an asset to the continent’s renaissance.

“Our collective duty is to build on his good works and example,” Dr Rugunda, former Prime Minister, posted on X.

The former Premier and his delegation were later hosted for a dinner by President Museveni’s advisor on youth affairs, Daniel Obal and his wife Daisry Mathias Obal.

His wife has been a senior advisor on youth matters and enterprise development to the late Namibian President. She currently still holds the same office.

“Grateful to Daisry Obal for making this happen. I thank them for joining me, in solidarity with our Namibian family. I thank H.E. President Museveni for sending this high-powered delegation to join me, in sending off Dr. Hage, who was a father to us,” Obal told tndNews on Monday.

“With my brother Amb. Paul Amoru at the helm, the relationship between Uganda and Namibia is already at its best,” he added.

Ambassador Amoru who is the Uganda High Commissioner in Pretoria, is also assigned to Namibia, Lesotho, and other five countries.
