Daily devotions to be held at Geingob residence

WINDHOEK: Daily evening devotions will be held at the residence of the late President Hage Geingob in Windhoek, local lawyer and family spokesperson Sisa Namandje has announced.

Speaking to mourners at the Geingob residence on Sunday, Namandje said it is not yet clear how long the daily devotions will be conducted for as the government is yet to pronounce itself on the funeral proceedings.

‘He always enjoyed having a lot of people in his house… There’s always a new group of people in this house,’ Namandje added.

The evening devotions will take place at 18h00 every day until the president is laid to rest.

Namandje said the late president always encouraged the building of the Namibian house, hence mourners from all walks of life, including from opposition parties, started gathering at the late president’s home to pay their respects.

‘There is a constitutional transition because of the vacancy created by this situation… but you don’t see army or police road blocks on the street because there’s not any dange
r. Everybody is rallying behind the family,’ Namandje said.

Geingob died in a Windhoek hospital early on Sunday. He had returned to Namibia on Wednesday after receiving cancer treatment in the United States of America.
