Windhoek, 17 May 2020 – Contrary to media reports and public speculation, Namibia Wildlife Resorts (NWR) would like to inform the public that one of its employees, Mr Lilungwe Brighton Tembwe, who passed on 15 May 2020 and was based at its Hardap resort, did not die from Covid-19. NWR would like to reiterate that the first group that was isolated at its Hardap resort for more than fourteen days, between 25 March and 9 April 2020, were all released without showing any symptoms of Covid-19.
“Mr Tembwe was one of our most friendly and committed employee and was always ready to be of assistance. Therefore, as a company, we have lost one of our valuable staff members. At the same time, we would like to send our condolences to his family and friends. They should be consoled in knowing that Brighton, as he was fondly known, will be dearly missed,” says Dr Matthias Ngwangwama, NWR Acting Managing Director.
“Before his death, Mr Tembwe had expressed his desire to continue serving our clientele to the best of his abilities. After having distinctively done so for over 11 years, I know he was going to excel for many more years to come,” says Mr Sunday Nelenge, NWR Hardap Resort Manager.
