Airports company remembers Geingob

Namibia Airports Company

THE board, management and staff of the Namibia Airports Company (NAC) say the death of former president Hage Geingob has silenced a dynamic leader, and his absence from the nation’s daily lives will be deeply mourned by all.

In a statement issued by NAC spokesperson Dan Kamati yesterday, chief executive Bisey /Uirab said the company is deeply saddened to learn of Geingob’s death.

“His leadership and his accomplishments will remain as a legacy for all Namibians. We are richer for his memory, and Namibia can be justly proud of his leadership and his life.

“We extend our sincere condolences to his family and the people of Namibia. Geingob’s selflessness was truly remarkable and inspiring in his quest to unite Namibians, in the spirit of working together for the country’s prosperity,” noted the statement.

/Uirab said during his tenure as president, Geingob’s wisdom and decisive leadership culminated in the inauguration of modern terminal buildings at the Andimba Toivo ya Toivo Airport at Ondangwa and the Walvis Bay International Airport.

“A brand-new fire station at Eros airport, as well as the revamp and extension of the Hosea Kutako International Airport’s terminal building to decongest Namibia’s main gateway, truly speaks volumes of his legacy.

“We mourn Geingob’s passing, but will continue to honour his legacy by ensuring that institutions, systems and processes are strengthened to stand the test of time as we commit to serving our nation with excellence and dedication,” said /Uirab.
