Petroleum Commissioner of the Ministry of Mines and Energy, Maggy Shino, remembered President Hage Geingob as an energy champion who did not hide his aggressive ambitions for the development of energy production in Namibia during his tenure.

“My last memory of President Geingob’s involvement with the petroleum industry was at the Africa Energy Week in October last year. In his address, he clearly articulated Namibia’s energy ambitions,” said Shino.

She described the late President as a remarkable leader who dedicated his life to serving the nation with integrity, compassion and dedication.

She extended her condolence to former First Lady Monica Gaingos and the children. “May you find comfort in his memories and the words of the Lord.

May his soul rest in Power,” she said.

Shino said that having to continue forging ahead to address the pertinent issues of energy security affecting Africa is what Gaingob would have wanted. Thereby urging that the work must go on, even though he is no longer in the midst cheering on.

She assured that the Ministry of Mines and Energy, despite this loss, the operations within the petroleum industry will continue without interruption.

The Commissioner reiterated that the ministry remains committed to upholding standards of excellence and continuity in the work of administering the industry, ensuring that the industry remains stable and resilient during this period of transition.

She said the dedicated team will continue to uphold this commitment and support and serve stakeholders and partners with the same level of professionalism and integrity.

As the Petroleum Commissioner, Shino reaffirms government commitments to supporting the growth and development of the oil and gas sector.

Recognising the importance of fostering an environment that encourages investment, promotes innovation and safeguards the interests of both the industry stakeholders and the Namibian people in their respective broader communities.

She maintains that the ministry will forge ahead because it is what the late President would have wanted, even though the current times are dark for the country.
