MESSAGE OF CONDOLENCES ON THE PASSING ON OF HON. PHILLEMON MOONGO, (MP)

 

It is with immense sadness and deep sense of loss that the National Assembly mourns the passing on of one of its veteran Members, Hon. Phillemon Moongo. On behalf of all Members and former Members of the National Assembly and its Secretariat, I wish to convey our heartfelt grief and condolences to the bereaved family, relatives, colleagues and friends of Hon. Phillemon Moongo and wish them all the strength to go through these hard times in solidarity and mutual support.

Hon. Phillemon Moongo was a Member of the National Assembly since 21 October 1994 until his death on the 10 March 2015. The National Assembly will remember Hon. Moongo as a staunch debater who contributed greatly to the drafting of new laws for independent Namibia. Further highlights of his parliamentary life are that over the years Hon. Moongo consistently used ‘Thursdays Question Time’ to query the Executive on service delivery and to bring issues close to the grassroots onto the floor of the House.

He persistently raised issues concerning the welfare of traditional leaders and tabled a number of motions seeking increments in pensioners’ social grants. Hon Phillemon Moongo was a distinguished Member of the House, who actively participated in the deliberations both on the floor of the House and through his Committee activities. May we all find solace in the fact that Hon. Phillemon Moongo, by God’s will, has completed the purpose of his life with excellence, dignity and statesmanship.

MAY HIS SOUL REST IN ETERNAL PEACE!

Yours in bereavement and solidarity,

Speaker of the National Assembly
