Egypt stands ready to assist Namibia in any way it can, as the country continues to navigate the impact of the death of the late President Hage Geingob.

Mohamed Hegazy, the Special Envoy of President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi, conveyed a message of condolence to President Nangolo Mbumba at State House.

He says Egypt shares Namibia's grief, given the solid historical ties between the two countries that have borne successes in project cooperation over the years.

The late President Geingob last visited Egypt during the COP-27 Summit in 2022, dubbed the African COP, which amplified the continent's voice in the drive against climate change.

"He was a great leader, and we were honoured during his many visits to Egypt. We have a long history with Namibia, and we are very proud to have been the first country to assist the Namibian military back in the 1960s. We cherish this history. Our current ambassador here is ready to assist in any way."

The Egyptian government further conveyed well wishes to President Mbumba on his swearing-in as Namibia's fourth president.

Special Envoy Hegazy assured President Mbumba of Egypt's continued support.

Hegazy and his delegation represented President El-Sisi at the state funeral service of the late President Geingob.
