Pablo to Be Laid to Rest in Tsumeb

LATE Namibian musician Max Michael Iipinge Mweshininga, known by his stage name Pablo, will be laid to rest in Tsumeb on Saturday, 10 January.

Fans and fellow musicians and personalities within the entertainment industry gathered at the UN Plaza in Windhoek to pay tribute to and celebrate the late musician’s life yesterday.

‘Pablo Diablo The Outlaw’ as he was popularly known, passed away on 29 December. Although an autopsy has been completed, the cause of death is still unknown until the results are released by the family. What is known is that the musician returned from a night out, fell asleep and simply never woke up again.

The late Pablo’s mother is scheduled to arrive in Namibia on Wednesday from Norway where she currently lives.

“Pablo’s father is in Tsumeb. We are just waiting for his mother who will arrive tomorrow and travel to Tsumeb for the funeral,” said Pablo’s aunt, Zenao Angula.

A memorial service will be held on Friday, 9 January at the Church of Elcin Bethesda at Nomtsoub in Tsumeb at 18h00. The funeral service will take place at the same church on Saturday.

Angula urged people, who may be interested in attending the funeral in Tsumeb, to communicate their interest so that the family can make the necessary arrangements to accommodate them for the reception after the funeral.

Pablo is survived by his parents, two siblings and two daughters.
