THE board of directors of the Namibia Students Financial Assistance Fund (NSFAF) will thoroughly study the arbitration order which saw former Chief Executive Officer Hilya Nghiwete winning her reinstatement bid.
Nghiwete on 15 July 2021 won a case in which she was challenging the board’s decision to dismiss her from her duties.
NSFAF was subsequently ordered to pay her over N$1 million as a result of the 16 months she has been without a job.
“The board is still studying the arbitration award and reasons for such award to enable the board to decide on the next course of action in the best interest of the fund within the parameters of the applicable laws,” NSFAF said in a statement last week.
The arbitration order states that Nghiwete is to start work on 1 September 2021.
It was ordered that her money be paid to her by NSFAF before the end of August 2021.
