Geingob’s office stated at the time that “cancerous cells” had been found in a biopsy that was performed after a normal medical check-up in January. Geingob was the third president and longest-serving prime minister of Namibia.

In neighboring South Africa, Geingob had an aortic surgery last year in addition to brain surgery in 2013. He had been receiving care at Lady Pohamba Hospital in Windhoek up to his passing.

Geingob Mbumba, a key player in the liberation war, has passed away as Namibia’s first president. Geingob was the nation’s first president who wasn’t from the Ovambo ethnic group. He was born in 1941.

He was forced into exile as a result of his opposition to the apartheid government in South Africa. He left the United States in 1964 after almost thirty years of living in Botswana.

Elections for the national assembly and presidency are scheduled for the end of the year in this country. While the government is working on state arrangements, Mbumba urged the people to maintain their composure.
