President Geingob mourns the loss of 'courageous humanitarian' Kofi Annan

President Hage Geingob, in a statement to the media on Saturday, said he mourns the loss of former United Nations Secretary General, Kofi Annan.
Geingob described him as a global statesman, a courageous humanitarian and exceptional servant of the African continent and humanity.
The new Chairperson of the Southern African Development Community (SADC), who was shocked when a journalist informed him during a press conference Saturday afternoon, said he has learned with immense sadness about the passing of Annan.
The Nobel Peace Price Laureate was only the second African to hold the post of UN Secretary General.
"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,” said President Geingob.
During this period of bereavement, President Geingob extends sincere condolences to the wife of Kofi Annan, Nane Maria Annan, his children, family and the people of Ghana.
