Sad News from Namibia

submitted by mulvihil@augsburg.edu

I write with the sad news that Sakeus “Ndangi” Mbango, the husband of CGEE’s Southern Africa Site Director, Albertina (Tina) Shifotoka, passed away on Saturday from complications related to COVID-19. He had been in the hospital and appeared to be improving, but his condition took a sharp turn at the end of the week.

Ndangi worked for the Namibian Ministry of Home Affairs and Immigration, where he rose to the rank of Control Officer for the Directorate of Refugee Administration. But more than anything else, he was a caring husband and father. He leaves behind Tina and their two children, Lusia and Soini, ages 8 and 13.

Tina is surrounded by family this week, and the love of her many Augsburg friends goes out to her.
