Ndjavera died on 14 July 2021 at the age of 51. His passing was confirmed by his friend Lucky Pieters who shared that the actor died on their way to the hospital.

“I, on behalf of the Ndjavera, Viriua, Murangi, Hengari, Shipurwa, and Hukura family, announce the passing away of our dear son, father, brother, and uncle this morning. He passed on, on our way to the hospital,” he shared.

News of Ndjavera's passing sent shockwaves across the country. The actor was a giant in the acting industry and it would be a major understatement to say he worked hard in the industry.

He starred in numerous films including Katutura, Hairabeb, and Taste of Rain. Additionally, he has many accolades and awards under his belt, including the best male actor award for 2013's Hairabeb at the Namibia Theatre and Film Awards.

Ndjavera died a few days following the passing of his wife who died of COVID-19- related complications. Speaking to The Namibian, his daughter Maveya Ndjavera opened up about the heartache of losing both her parents.

“Losing two parents in a matter of days is very, very hard. We are still mourning my mother, and our dad helped us during those days, and now he is gone.

“This is just not fair. It's very hard. I have to be strong for the family. The good thing is that my father taught me how to fight and stand up for myself. Now I have to stand for my siblings and grandmother,”

Ndjavera's work ethic was unmatched and at the time of his passing, he was working on a certain production. His friend Lucky said when they were on their way to the hospital he wanted to tell the production manager to reschedule the shoot.

“I immediately drove to his house at Rocky Crest and picked him up. While on our way his last words to me were: 'Please call the production manager to reschedule the shoot.” And that was it. It's so surreal. I can't believe he is gone,”
he said.
