NYC committee appointed to ‘unify’ Nanso

30 June 2015 | Youth

A committee, consisting of National Youth Council (NYC) representatives from regional youth forums and national affiliates, has been set up to assist in unifying the Namibia National Student Organisation (Nanso). Chairperson of the NYC Representative Council Neville Andre said the committee will investigate the causes of Nanso’s divisions and recommend ways and means to alleviate the impasses. This follows Nanso suspension from the NYC after two individuals, who both claim they represent Nanso, showed up for a meeting at the weekend in Nkurenkuru. They are current Nanso secretary-general Dimbulukeni Nauyoma and his predecessor Sharonice Busch. NYC executive chairperson Mandela Kapere told Namibian Sun that the sentiment from the floor was to suspend Nanso and help it to sort out its leadership squabbles. The current Nanso leadership told Namibian Sun said they are seeking legal opinion following their suspension from the NYC. The NYC committee consists of NYC board member John Kantana, who is the chairperson, the acting chairperson of the Erongo Regional Youth Forum, Shuudeni Muafengeyo, the chairperson of the Oshana Regional Youth Forum, Ephraim Nekongo, the secretary-general of the Swanu Youth League and the secretary-general of the DTA Youth League, Bensen Katjirijova. Andre said the meeting observed with concern that Nanso had two representatives. “Unlike other platforms where this has happened in the last few months, the situation had to be addressed because the representative council is a statutory meeting of the NYC, and the Act requires that only one person or representative per organisation should attend it,” said Andre. He said the matter of Nanso’s dual representation was raised from the floor and members deliberated that the NYC - without involving itself in the internal matters of Nanso - must help resolve the leadership impasse and stagnation. Andre also said that none of the two factions of Nanso will be allowed to represent the organisation at statutory meetings of the NYC. Earlier this year, Nanso held its congress and Wilhelem Wilhelem emerged as the new president, after Busch withdrew from the contest. This led the organisation being run by two offices - one by its former president Timotheus Angala and another by Wihelem. Andre said yesterday that after the congress they received complaints from both factions, with the previous leadership saying the congress was not fairly constituted and that those who won were not the legitimate leadership. He added that the NYC did not receive a report about the outcome of the congress, only complaints. WINDHOEK SELMA IKELA
