banker who inspired so many people.

He said Iindji was a gifted leader who exuded so much energy and exhibited amazing natural human relations and networking abilities.

‘As we mourn his untimely passing and celebrate his life so well spent, we cherish his great legacy that he is visibly leaving behind. He was a great gift to Namibia and humanity. May he rest well,’ Shaanika said.
