WINDHOEK: The Namibian Police Force (NamPol) has over the past few months handed over two dockets to the office of the Prosecutor-General in connection with forensic investigations into the mismanagement and alleged squandering of over N.dollars 660 million from the Government Institutions’ Pension Fund (GIPF).
NamPol Inspector-General, Lieutenant-General Sebastian Ndeitunga said during a media briefing today that at this stage, two dockets of the 21 investigations of several companies and individuals implicated in the GIPF saga, with recommendations, have already been forwarded to the office of the Prosecutor-General (PG), Olivia Ekandjo-Imalwa, for a decision.
He explained that the PG’s office may still raise certain queries, based on the evidence submitted so far, adding that these queries will be dealt with by the investigation team as speedily as possible.
According to the police chief, seven other dockets in which the forensic investigation team found no possible evidence of criminal conduct, will also be submitted to the PG’s office in due course to enable them to review the evidence.
He noted that the investigations on the remaining 12 dockets will be completed during the next six months.
2 (WINDHOEK) – Namibia must start providing quality education if it is to create better employment opportunities for its citizenry, the Deputy Minister of Labour and Social Welfare said today.
Alpheus Muheua said during the launch of two publications of the National Youth Council (NYC), which deal with unemployment amongst the youth, that there is a close correlation between quality education and decent employment.
Muheua said while educational opportunities may be provided, the onus for the acquisition of knowledge lies with the learner or student, and the transformation of learning into education is largely a product of their attitude towards education.
Muheua said the honourable thing to do is to get educated, rather than allowing illiteracy to settle in the midst of young people.
Those youth who are parents must also strive to provide quality education for their children, then only can they be honourable parents.
