President Hifikepunye Pohamba has announced the death of one of Swapo’s Liberation stewards Lameck Ithete.

Pohamba was speaking at the closing ceremony of the Swapo Electoral College at Safari Court in the capital a few minutes ago.

"I have a very sad announcement to make and this concerns the death of one of Swapo’s icons, Lameck Ithete who passed away. He will be buried in the Northern part of the country and those who can join us should join us at Omugulugumbashe next week when we honour him,"Pohamba said.

He added that it is with deep sorrow and shock that the party announces the death of one of their cadres at a time when the country is looking at the forthcoming election in November.
