It is with a profound sense of loss and deep sorrow that we learned of the passing of the esteemed President of the Republic of Namibia, His Excellency Hage Gottfried Geingob, a distinguished former member of the Pan-African Parliament. As we mourn this great loss, we also celebrate the indelible contributions that he made to our continent during his tenure.

His unwavering commitment to Pan-Africanism and his dedication to the cause of our Parliament have left an enduring legacy that will inspire future generations. On behalf of the Pan-African Parliament, I offer our heartfelt condolences to the people of Namibia, his family, and all who were touched by his visionary leadership.

May his soul rest in eternal peace.
