This was confirmed by the Vice President of the ruling party of Angola, MPLA, Luísa Damião, during a meeting with President Nangolo Mbumba at State House.

The delegation arrived in Windhoek to deliver a special message of condolence from President Lourenco to the Namibian government, the family of the late President Geingob, and the nation at large.

Dr. Geingob dedicated himself to Namibia- MPLA


Angola's ruling party and a sister liberation movement, the MPLA, has added their voice of sympathy to its Namibian counterpart, the Swapo Party, following the untimely death of Namibian Leader Dr. Hage Geingob.

The MPLA, in a statement, says it is saddened by the death of Geingob.

It says the late President Geingob was an icon of the liberation struggle and a national symbol who dedicated himself with total availability and a spirit of sacrifice, especially in defence of the ideals that guided the long process of the struggle to achieve Namibia's independence.
