THE Minister of Higher Education, Training and Innovation, Dr Itah Kandjii-Murangi yesterday inaugurated the Namibia University of Science and Technology (Nust) external council members.


The newly appointed members are Florette Nakusera, serving as the Chairperson, who replaced Advocate Esi Schimming-Chase, Michael Humavindu as Vice Chairperson of the council, Windhoek Mayor Muese Kazapua, Conrad Lutombi, Elizabeth Kamutuezu, Emma Kantema-Gaomab, Kandiva Hamutumwa, Thomas Indjii and Katrina Thomas.


The Spokesperson of the higher education ministry, Selma Ngola, told Informanté that the council will serve a period of three years, although she could not divulge the areas of focus the new council members are expected to execute during their tenure.

Ngola could further not comment on the recent resignation of the Nust Acting Vice chancellor Morne du Toit, whose resignation came as a surprise late last month. 


“All I can say right now is that we are currently busy with the process of appointing an Acting Vice Chancellor with immediate effect. We shall then begin the process of recruiting a permanent Vice Chancellor,” Ngola said.


Schimming-Chase resigned in June after she wrote a letter to Kandjii-Murangi expressing her disappointment because of the minister’s continued interference in the university’s affairs.
