Namibia’s President Hage Geingob has died while receiving medical treatment at a hospital in the capital, Windhoek, according to BBC
The broadcaster quoted the Southern African country’s head of state Vice-President Nangolo Mbumba announcing that Mr Geingob passed away early hours of Sunday morning.
“At his side was his dear wife Madame Monica Geingos and his children,” Mr Mbumba said in a statement.
The 82-old leader had been diagnosed with cancer and revealed his diagnosis to the public last month.
His office announced he would be travelling to the US for treatment, but would return to Namibia on 2 February.
