– Ministry of Public Enterprise announces the extension of the NWR Board term on a temporary basis
The Acting Minister of Public Enterprises, Honourable Ipumbu Shiimi, announced the extension of the Namibia Wildlife Resorts Board Members’ term of office on a temporary basis from 15 June until 14 December 2022.
The board, whose contracts came to an end on the 14th of June 2022, was extended for another 6 months pending the finalization of the recruitment of new board members so as to enable a smooth and orderly handover.
The board that has already served 2 terms was recently applauded at the institution’s recently concluded Annual General Meeting for, amongst others, bringing NWR’s financial reports up to date, conforming to the Public Enterprises and Procurement Acts, and, most recently, for setting an example in taking a cut in their board fees when the company experienced cash flow constraints due to the Covid pandemic. The 7 Board members are Board Chairperson Ambassador Leonard lipumbu, Janet Wilson Moore (Deputy Chairperson), Elize Petersen, Ruddie Putter, Bernd Schneider, Eva Shifotoka and Carol Williams.
