Hundreds of mourners from all over Namibia, including Prime Minister Saara Kuugongelwa-Amadhila, gathered at Eenhana National Shrine on Saturday for the burial of Ambassador Hadino Hishongwa.
Hishongwa died at the age of 80 in the Medipark Private Hospital after an illness on 31 August.
As Hishongwa's casket got lowered, he was given 17 gun salute.
President Hage Geingob said the late Hishongwa will be remembered for his devotion to Namibia's struggle for Independence.
