Geingob off to Ghana

12 September 2018 | Government

President Hage Geingob will fly out of the country this afternoon to attend the state funeral of former UN secretary-general Kofi Annan, who died on 18 August 2018 in Switzerland. The Ghanaian-born Anna will be buried tomorrow in Accra. “The loss of Kofi Annan, an exemplary son of Ghana, leaves a huge void for the African continent, and humanity at large, which he has served as a courageous humanitarian with immeasurable passion and distinction. Without doubt, Africa has lost a man of integrity and a hero of our continent who worked throughout his entire life persistently for a better humanity,” Geingob said.
