It further wished the family of the Office of the President and advisors, the Cabinet, and the Namibian Government all the strength and wisdom needed to lead the Namibian House through the unique and unexpected challenges ahead. 'Independent Namibia has lost one of its pioneers, who served this country until the end. May his legacy live on, and his soul rest in eternal peace,' said Gitta Paetzold, Corporate Executive Officer of HAN.
