History will vindicate us – Jooste, Shiimi
24 February 2021 | Transport
Finance minister Iipumbu Shiimi and public enterprise minister Leon Jooste are standing by a cabinet decision to liquidate Air Namibia.
The ministers appeared on the NBC's 'Talk of the Nation' programme where they addressed the liquidation of the airline, saying history would absolve Cabinet one day for its decision.
Motivating the decision behind the closure of the airline, Jooste said it would take Namibians a while to get used to the idea but that it was the right decision.
“It's devastating and it will take a while for us to get over this but I am still convinced together with our colleagues that this decision was taken in the best interest of our country and its people.
