President Emmerson Mnangagwa and the First Lady, Dr Auxilia Mnangagwa have arrived in Windhoek for the memorial service of the late Namibian President, Dr Hage Geingob.

Speaking after touching down at Eros Airport, President Mnangagwa narrated the long history between Namibia and Zimbabwe back from the days of the liberation struggle.

He also spoke about the collaboration between the liberation movements, saying the current crop of liberation movement leaders continue to collaborate to make sure the younger generation upholds Pan-Africanism and realises the importance of staying united as a region.

The Head of State said Dr Geingob was one of the leaders who made sure all his speeches at the United Nations were against the sanctions imposed on Zimbabwe, saying Zimbabwe has lost a pillar of support.

Over 20 Heads of State are expected to attend the memorial service which is being held this afternoon at the Independence Stadium.

Dr Geingob will be buried tomorrow at the Heroes Acre in Windhoek.
