MORE than a thousand youths from different educational institutions in the North marched from Ongwediva to the Office of the Oshana Regional Governor in Oshakati in solidarity with their colleagues in Windhoek to demonstrate their dissatisfaction with the Namibia Student Financial Assistance Fund’s (NSFAF) decision not to provide study loans to 12 000 students.
The country-wide protest follows the Namibian Government’ s announcement that due to insufficient funds such loans will not be possible at this stage.
Leaders of the demonstrating students handed their petition with their list of demands to Oshana Regional Governor, Elia Irimari.
