Nghiwete suspended

16 April 2018 | Local News


The board of the Namibia Students Financial Assistance Fund (NSFAF) today suspended its CEO Hilya Nghiwete pending an investigation of her actions. NSFAF board chairperson Jerome Mutumba announced the suspension in a media release. “This is on account of serious allegations that have come to the attention of the board,” said Mutumba. “The concerned allegations border on the centrality of maladministration and/or administrative corruption, amongst other misconducts, which upon preliminary review by the board presented prima facie reasons justifying that in the interest of the institution and the public at large, certain disciplinary actions be considered against her.” Kennedy Kandume has been appointed as interim CEO, while investigations against Nghiwete are being finalised.
