President Hage Geingob has described the passing on of Paul Helmuth, as a loss of a voice that educated citizens on civil and political issues.
Uncle Paul, as he was known among NBC radio listeners, died in the Roman Catholic Hospital on Friday.
Geingob, accompanied by First Lady, Monica Geingos and Prime Minister Saara Kuungongelwa-Amadhila, signed the book of condolences at Uncle Paul's residence.
The Head of State consoled the bereaved family, comrades and friends as well compatriots, who have benefited from Uncle Paul's contribution to nation-building and reconciliation.
The late politician-turned-social-activist and commentator was a regular contributor on the NBC National FM talk shows, currently called the Ninth Hour and People's Parliament.
Topics Helmuth engaged listeners on include local and international politics, community issues and welfare of the less privileged.
Uncle Paul is survived by his widow, Ella Helmuth and five children.
He will be buried in the Pionierspark Cemetery this Saturday.
