WINDHOEK, 12 APR (NAMPA) – President Hage Geingob has expressed his condolences to the Ovambanderu Traditional Authority (OTA) for the loss of senior traditional Councillor Mateus Kanduvee Katjiteo Karungaiva, who died on 05 April 2019.
He was 90 years old.
Geingob also expressed his condolences to the bereaved family, in a statement issued by presidential spokesperson Alfredo Hengari on Friday.
The statement said the president recognises the instrumental role played by senior Councillor Karungaiva in the affairs of the OTA.
