First Council elects leaders

This is the Institution’s first Council since the Polytechnic of Namibia was transformed to the Namibia University of Science and Technology.

The Council held its Induction Session for new members early in September, followed two weeks later by a Governance Workshop. At its first official inaugural meeting held on 26

September, fellow Council members elected a Chairperson and Deputy Chairperson. Adv Esi Schimming-Chase is the new Chairperson and Goms Menetté the Deputy Chairperson.

Schimming Chase is a practising Advocate of the High Court of Namibia, specialising in civil, commercial and consulting litigation. She also serves as President of the Namibian Bar Association.

Menetté is the Deputy Auditor-General and Permanent Secretary in the Office of the Auditor-General. He is a Board Member of the Government Institutions Pension Fund (GIPF) and is also the Chairperson of the Government Investment Committee Fund. Menetté serves as a member of the International Organisation of Supreme Audit Institutions Financial Audit

Guidelines Subcommittee (INTOSAI) and the Batswana Ba Namibia Board of Trustees.

The Council members will serve a term of three years as prescribed in the University of Science and Technology Act.
