THE Founding President and Father of the Nation, Dr. Sam Nujoma described the former Vice President Dr. Nickey Iyambo as national icon, who was indeed hardworking, articulate and attentive to details.
“I agree with those who describe him as a seasoned politician that earned himself a good reputation as a medical doctor. He always had a calm approach even in the midst of strife and discord.” Dr. Nujoma said.
He further stated that, Iyambo will be remembered by the current and future generations of Namibians as a dedicated freedom fighter and a committed patriot whose legacy will continue to inspire all Namibians as they embark upon the second phase of the struggle for economic independence.
“In this regard, I pay my revolutionary tribute to him. He was without questions, one of the fighters for the betterment of our country and the democracy we enjoy today,” Dr. Nujoma concluded his tribute to the late Dr. Iyambo.
