EU visits the mix informal settlements

Commissioner Jutta Urpilainen, in charge of International Partnerships at the European Union, paid a familiarisation visit to the mix informal settlements, 20 km north of Windhoek. 

The EU, through its Budget Support Programme, funded an Early Childhood Development Centre at mix which opened in April last year. 

With close to 11 000 inhabitants and more than 4 000 households, people living at mix informal settlements are no strangers to high rates of unemployment or poor service delivery. 

Education Ministry submits report on dismall final year exam results to President Geingob

The Ministry of Education, Arts, and Culture says it has highlighted all the factors that contributed to the dismal performance of learners in grades 11 and 12 last year.

Minister Anna Nghipondoka and Deputy Minister Faustina Caley, accompanied by the senior leadership, submitted the report to President Hage Geingob at State House.

Dr. Geingob requested the report from the Minister after more than 80% of the candidates who sat for NSSCO and NSSCAS level exams failed to qualify for admission to tertiary institutions.
