The late President Hage G. Geingob was an established politician of international stature.

This was evident during his memorial and funeral ceremony, where close to 20 heads of state and a large number of international delegations from across the globe attended. 

The late Geingob believed in international coordination and multilateralism, and he was hailed by the United Nations for that.
