THE recent passing of Professor Mburumba Kerina and Reverend Willem Konjore has driven the stark reality of the deadly wave of COVID-19 home to residents of Namibia.
President Hage Geingob extended his sincere condolences and sympathies to the families of these two outstanding statesmen who dedicated their lives to the liberation of the country and the prosperity of all Namibians.
According to a statement issued by State House, President Hage Geingob has conferred the honour of a state funeral on the late Professor Kerina and Reverend Konjore.
The remains of the late Reverend Konjore are to be interred at #Gabis in the Karasburg East Constituency, on 26 June 2021, as agreed to with his family.
The remains of the late Professor Kerina will be interred on a date and place to be agreed to by his family, although it was his wish to buried in Okahandja.
