Military procession with Geingob’s body set for Friday in Windhoek

The remains of president Hage Geingob will be taken for a military procession in Windhoek, information and communication technology minister Emma Theofelus announced on Tuesday.

The government also confirmed that about 27 heads of state and government have confirmed their attendance for the memorial service and funeral, slated for Saturday and Sunday, respectively.

Other governments will be represented by their ambassadors or prime ministers, Theofelus said.

As part of the celebrations of Geingob’s life, a music festival is also slated to take place at Katutura in Windhoek this week. The event will be free for members of the public.

Theofelus called on Namibians to line up at designated routes of the procession to pay their respects to the late president.
