WINDHOEK, 28 JAN (NAMPA) – The late William Amagulu was a friendly and dedicated man to the Namibian nation, says Veterans’ Affairs Minister Nickey Iyambo.
Amagulu, a former Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Veterans’ Affairs, died on Tuesday at the Katutura Intermediate Hospital.
Iyambo told Nampa on enquiry Wednesday that Amagulu felt unwell on Tuesday morning and drove himself to that hospital.
He said doctors tried all they possibly could to safe Amugulu, but his health condition deteriorated and he succumbed to death later in the day.
Iyambo said that he remembers the former PS as a man who was dedicated to serve the Namibian nation to the best of his ability.
“Namibia lost a dedicated leader as well as a diplomat,” he said, adding that his ministry is indeed saddened by Amagulu's sudden death.
“We as the Ministry of Veterans’ Affairs wish the beloved family and friends of the deceased strength from above during this difficult moment,” said Iyambo.
Amagulu worked as Permanent Secretary since the Veterans’ Ministry’s inception in October 2006, until he retired in October 2013.
Iyambo said Amagulu went into exile in 1979 when he joined the liberation struggle movement and excelled in his duties.
He was appointed as High Commissioner to both Zimbabwe and Ethiopia in 1982 during Namibia’s liberation struggle.
