Bishop Nambala new IUM chancellor

30 August 2018 | Education

Bishop Shekutaamba Vänö-Väinö Nambala was sworn in as the third chancellor of the International University of Management (IUM) on Wednesday at the university’s main campus in Dorado Park, Windhoek.
He was born into a peasant family at Onewawa village, Ondonga in the Omuntele constituency in the Oshikoto Region on 5 August 1952.
Dr David Namwandi, founder and chair of IUM governing council, thanked the outing going chancellor Bishop Episcopus Emeritus Kleopas Dumeni for his hard work and contributions over the past years.
Namwandi also welcomed the incoming chancellor and added that he is looking forward to working with him.
“We welcome you wholeheartedly into the IUM community of scholars as the third chancellor, and we look forward to your leading hand and to benefit from your vast wisdom and experience,” he said.
Speaking at the inaugural ceremony Nambala said that he is excited to be at helm of the institution as the chancellor and undertook to continue with the same vigour the two previous chancellors kept during their tenures.
"I am aware of the existence of other institutions of higher learning, but the objective of IUM is not to compete but rather act in a complementary manner to mobilise the institution to do the best it can for the sake of education and humanity," he said.
Nambala called upon all people who love education, both within and outside Namibia to come and join, and support, the university with whatever resources they can in order to make IUM's academic dream a lasting reality.
