TSUMKWE: Swapo-Party Regional Councillor for the Tsumkwe Constituency and Member of the National Council, Moses Kgao !Coma, who died two weeks ago after a short illness, was laid to rest on Saturday in Tsumkwe East.
He was 50. !Coma died in the Otjiwarongo Medi-Clinic after complaining of chest pains in a meeting he attended in Otjiwarongo on 21 August 2012.
Otjozondjupa Regional Governor Rapama Kamehozu on Saturday joined the San community in Tsumkwe East to bury !Coma.
Tsumkwe is situated over 270 kilometres east of Grootfontein.
“It is with great sorrow that I stand here before you to bid farewell to our dear honourable councillor,” said Kamehozu.
He said the tragic death of !Coma is a great loss to the region, the entire San Community and to all those that knew him.
Speaking on behalf of the government and people of the Republic of Namibia, the governor urged the bereaved family to ask for strength and comfort from the almighty God during this difficult time.
!Coma became regional councillor in 2004, and was elected to represent the Otjozondjupa Region in the National Council in 2009.
He leaves behind his pregnant wife, nine children, and four siblings.
