President Geingob sends messages of condolences to China over death of former President Zemin


President Hage Geingob says the death of China's former President, Jiang Zemin, is a loss not only to the people of China and the Communist Party, but also to Namibia.

Jiang died on Wednesday, aged 96.

President Geingob, in a statement, said that Namibia-China relations were established under Jiang's leadership shortly after independence.

Jiang visited Namibia in 1996 as President to strengthen mutual cooperation and development between the two countries.
