WONDHOEK OFFICIALTO FIND OUT WHY NAMIBIAN STUDENTS ARE BANNED FROM TWO ZAMBIAN VARSITIES

Closed

The acting Permanent Secretary in Namibia’s Ministry of Health and Social Services (MoHSS), Petronella Masabane, will undertake an urgent mission to Zambia on Monday, to find out why two universities there are banned from offering health courses to Namibian students.

This follows an alert by the Namibian High Commission (Embassy) in Zambia that Cavendish University Zambia and the Lusaka Apex Medical University have been banned from continuing to offer health courses to 91 Namibian students.

Upon enquiry on Friday, Masabane could not divulge the reasons as to why those universities were banned from continuing to offer health courses to the namibian students, but explained that she and her delegation would assess the situation and take appropriate action.

She said the outcome of the visit will then be shared with the public. Masabane assured the parents and the public at large that the Ministry would not allow the situation to negatively impact the performance of the students and its human resource development programme.

She will be accompanied by representatives from the Health Professions Council of Namibia and the University of Namibia’s School of Medicine
