“It is with a deep sense of sadness that I have learned about the passing of the former President of the Republic of Zimbabwe, Comrade Robert Mugabe, an outstanding revolutionary, a tenacious freedom fighter and dedicated Pan Africanist.
An extraordinary First Wave African leader and hero of the cause for freedom in Africa, President Mugabe made enormous sacrifices in the struggle against injustice and the liberation of Southern Africa from racial subjugation and colonial oppression.
President Mugabe leaves behind a rich legacy of service for the political and economic emancipation of the people of Southern Africa.
As Namibians, we owe President Mugabe a deep sense of gratitude for his immense and selfless contributions to the liberation of our country.
On behalf of the Namibian people, I extend sincere condolences to my dear brother, President Emmerson Mnangagwa, the family and the people of Zimbabwe. The loss of the people of Zimbabwe is Africa’s loss.
May his Revolutionary Soul Rest in Eternal Peace.”
