Namibia's Ambassador to Egypt, Andrew Intamba passed away in Windhoek
on Tuesday night.

Intamba, 69, died at the Rhino Park private hospital around 19h00.

Family member Remember Hawala confirmed the sad news to Nampa on Wednesday.

In 2008, President Hifikepunye Pohamba appointed the former Central
Intelligence Services' Director as Namibia's first ambassador to
Egypt.

During the commissioning ceremony at State House, Pohamba described
Intamba as a tested cadre, who dedicated his youth to the Namibian
liberation struggle as a combatant of the People's Liberation Army of
Namibia (PLAN), the ruling SWAPO-Party's former military wing.

"He is one of the pioneers of our liberation struggle, whose
dedication to the fight for freedom and nationhood we all applaud.
After the attainment of independence, Intamba continued to contribute
immensely to our government's efforts to consolidate democracy and
create a better life for our people," the President said then.

In 2007, Pohamba also conferred the honorary rank of Army Colonel on
Intamba during the 31st commemoration of the launch of Namibia' armed
struggle for his contribution as a former PLAN Field Commander.
