– A 23-year-old Lady has emerged as Namibia’s youngest minister.
A Namibian lady, identified as Emma Theofilus, has been appointed as the country’s deputy information and technology minister.
The young lady’s appointment has made her Namibia’s youngest minister and member of parliament, Face 2 Face Africa reports.
Emma was appointed the country’s president, Hage Geingob and it was criticised by the country’s old elites who questioned her capacity and competence.
However, the young lady said she is not inexperienced and she is able to do anything she sets out to do.
She said: “I do not think I am special, but I do not think I am inexperienced, and I do not think being young or female has anything to do with my appointment. Anything I set myself to and any environment I want to work into, I can do it; so the issue of inexperience does not hold any water.”
Emma was appointed Namibia’s deputy minister of information, communication and technology in March 2020, as part of Hage Geingob’s second term cabinet.
