“When I finished school after Independence there were no universities in Namibia, so I went to South Africa. Then in 2008, I managed to study at the Poly and in 2011 I was part of the first intake for the Master’s Degree in Leadership and Change Management. It is very exciting and it is an honour to be associated with this university.” -Fillemon Hambunda, Acting CEO of the City of Windhoek.
