Cuban parliamentary leader attends Hage Geingob’s funeral in Namibia

Windhoek, Feb 25 (Prensa Latina) The president of the National People’s Power Assembly (Parliament) of Cuba, Esteban Lazo, participated in the burial ceremony of former Namibian President Hage G. Geingob, in the Acre of Heroes on Sunday.

In this context, the president of the Council of State met with the presidents of Ethiopia, Sahle-Work Zewde, and of South Africa, Cyril Ramaphosa.

Lazo attended Geingob’s state funeral on Saturday, where he highlighted the former Namibian president’s role as “an undisputed African leader” since the insertion of independent Namibia in 1990.

He stressed that Geingob passionately defended not only his people’s right to forge themselves as a sovereign nation, but also contributed to cementing Namibia’s international projection, putting the country at the forefront in the fight for the development of the peoples of the Third World and Africa in particularly, for equality and justice. We will never forget our friend, the Cuban parliamentary leader emphasized on the occasion.

A Baobab has fallen but his example will be multiplied in the young people who embody the future and who will make Namibia a better country, as he dreamed, Lazo noted.
