Advocate Shakespeare Masiza (50) passed away in a local private hospital on Tuesday after a short battle with Covid-19.
According to family representative Confidence Musariri, he is survived by his wife Lorraine and three children.
Described as a true fighter, Masiza was the first black Namibian to establish a law firm in the Erongo region, namely Masiza Law Chambers.
“During his illustrious career, he served Namibia as the founding board chairman of Namibia Desert Diamonds (Namdia) until 2019, having previously served as Namport board chairperson,” Musariri said. “He was also the former chief executive of the Road Fund Administration (RFA).”
At the time of his death Masiza was an admitted attorney of the High Court of Namibia as well as an Advocate of the High Court. “The love with which he was surrounded in his final days was so great it cannot be quantified in words,” Musariri said.
The family would like to thank the frontline staff for their professionalism and the multitudes of prayers from across the globe that were made during Masiza’s time in hospital.
According to Musariri, further details will be announced in consultation with the family.
