Zambian President Hakainde Hichilema says his government will continue the support that has been extended to Namibia even after the funeral of the late President Hage Geingob.

Hichilema says Zambia, having lost two sitting presidents before, will continue to share the experience that goes with this period.

The Zambian head of state said this in an exclusive interview with nbc News correspondent Wamundila Chilinda before his departure to Lusaka.

Zambia's presidents have, for many decades, associated with and stood shoulder-to-shoulder with Namibia on many different fronts.

Haimbe Mulambo, Zambia's Minister of Justice and acting Foreign Affairs Minister, was in the presidential entourage.

Back home in Zambia, a road has been renamed in honour of the late President Geingob, with another named after the founding President, Dr. Sam Nujoma.
