Mbumba driving behind Geingob’s remains across Windhoek

President Nangolo Mbumba is escorting the remains of the late president Hage Geingob in a street procession which started at State House and is making its way to Katutura on Friday afternoon.

Mbumba received Geingob’s remains from Namibian Defence Force chief Martin Pineas at State House.

Hundreds of Namibians are crowding by the roadside as they want a glimpse of the late president’s casket.

Geingob’s body has been escorted through Ausspannplatz and moved along Moses //Garoeb Street on its way to Winnie Madikizela Mandela Road.

A Windhoek resident, Paulin Kaoses Buchani, reflected on earlier years when she and president Hage Geingob met in the United Kingdom.

“He was a good person to me, whenever I was in need, he was always there for me,” Buchani said.

Buchani is among people gathered along Moses //Garoeb Street awaiting the procession of Geingob’s remains.

Another Namibian, Lydia Hawaes, and her mother, Elfrieda Temba, were waiting near Independence Arena in Katutura to pay their last respects to Geingob, whose remains are being taken through Windhoek and on to Casa Rosalia, his residence on the eastern outskirts of the city.
