Namibia: Namwandi keeps himself away from Rimcockwin

Former Minister of Education David Namwandi has vehemently denied involvement in the story of Malaysia-owned Limkokwing University. In a document disseminated on social media this week, Namwandi Higher Education Minister Ita Kanjii Murangi and former Namivia Student Financial Assistance Fund (NSFAF) CEO Hilliya Giwete have all established universities so far. Has been accused of promoting.

However, Namwandi dismissed reports earlier this week that it promoted the establishment of LimKokWing University in Namibia. “The claim that the University of Vienna in Namibia was my idea is a serious mistake and lacks the truth, but I can confirm that the University of Vienna is the Namibian High Commission in Malaysia. It was one of several universities in Malaysia jointly identified by Namibian students to pursue their research, “said Namwandi.

He repeated: “I have nothing to do with promoting student sponsorship at the University of LimKokWing in Namibia, and I did not promote its establishment in Namibia.”

At the National Assembly in September, Kanjii Murangi denied her involvement in the establishment of the institution, saying people wanted to hurt her name and reputation. Kandjii-Murangi said the allegations linking her to the establishment of the Limkokwing University of Creative Technology in Namibia were aimed at portraying her as corrupt. She said Limcockwin was exclusively owned by Malaysians and denied that her ministry had signed an agreement requiring the government to pay to establish a university in Namibia.

“These are all fabrications aimed at damaging my good name and reputation,” she said. A document by an unknown author entitled “LimkokWing University” is a corrupt trading baby of David Namwandi and Hilya Nghiwete and has nothing to do with Itah Kandjii-Murangi. Of a university in Namibia.

At that time, NSFAF was under the Minister, Hilya Nghiwete was under the Vice-Minister, and Namwandi was the Deputy Minister. Then Minister Abraham Iyambo apparently did not approve these arrangements by Namwandi and Nigiwete when it was presented to him.

By the end of 2012, the author added that by the end of 2012, approximately 157 students had been selected to study in Malaysia, of which 83 had been sent to LimKokWing University.
