Rehoboth residents gathered to pay tribute to the late war veteran Theofilus Sakeus at his residence on Friday.

The war veteran, who died on July 11, was described by many as a diplomat in the fight for liberation struggle and left a legacy of peace within the community.

"He had a firm mind; he knew when to talk and when not to talk, when to walk and when not to walk, when to hide when the guns were coming, and when to stand up straight, and he was upright in his character", said Marlene Mungunda.

She added that the late Sakeus was skilled and resourceful for the Swapo Party.

During the campaigns, Sakeus mobilised the voters and fought to make sure that the constituency he lived in remained under Swapo.

The funeral service took place in Rehoboth.
