THE family of Seth Boois, the former Kalkrand Constituency Councillor and Brave Warriors football coach, has requested President Hage Geingob to accord him hero status and to have his funeral at Heroes Acre.
Boois passed away at the age of 60 in a Windhoek hospital after he tested positive for COVID-19 last week.
Lawyer Beatrix Boois of BB Boois Attorneys, in a letter to the President, said the reason for the family’s request is because of her father’s contribution to sport in Namibia.
“He has further contributed to the cultural and literary development and documentation of Namibian history through his books. Having dedicated the majority of his livelihood to the development of football players, the game of football in Namibia and literary contributions, we are instructed to humbly seek the indulgence of your esteemed office in affording the late Mr Seth Boois hero status, and to bury him at Heroes Acre,” Beatrix wrote in the letter.
Boois also served as a technical director at the Namibia Football Association.
