Opinion - Lack of Affirmative Action Policy in the heritage sector



Reality in the leadership and management of the cultural and heritage sector in Namibia is the absence of oversight when it comes to compliance with the application of the Affirmative Action Policy of which the office of the Employment Equity Commission is a custodian.

This concern is affirmed by the fact that the management of the sector is dominated by our female colleagues from the political leadership (ministers), executive director, director level at the ministry, the national museum management, middle management of the National Heritage Council and many national heritage programmes and sites. Genuine apprehension is if men are not expressing interest in the employment opportunities or that there are no male experts in the field of study and operation, but the status quo is worrisome.

Recently an advert on the National Heritage Council of Namibia website and in the print media for the director’s position is noted and in the circles of our progressive discussions with fellow sector players, it is our hope that, the ministry of education, culture and sports executive director, director of culture and heritage programme, and chairperson of the NHCN board ensure that the selection, interview and recruitment process of the successful candidate is objective, fair, and subject to public scrutiny for transparency so that we get someone who has the ability to lead such an institution, especially at the time when national historical monuments of colonial memorial face persecution.
It is our hope that people of relevant and related knowledge and academic background apply for this position to strut up the image of the NHCN and make it relevant and appealing and present to the contemporaries of modern day.

    FINALLY CURED FROM HERPES VIRUS  I am writing this testimonial to inform others who have similar problems about how Dr. HASSAN cures my herpes virus, I never believed when my doctor told me that there there was no permanent cure for the herpes virus, but I found that there is a herbal cure for the herpes virus with a 100% guarantee I am proof of that, I have the conviction that I will find a cure one day. I started looking for different herbal doctors and finally found after reading articles on Dr. HASSAN I decided to contact him for his herbal cure for the herpes virus because I have never tried herbal medicine since I got herpes. I contacted him and I ordered for his medication which he answered and we both have a little talk about my illness and he sent me his herbal medication which I used for 3 weeks and it's been 2 years now that I completely get rid of my herpes plus epidemics and I was confirmed negative for this virus by my Dr. I am very happy to share this testimony to let all those who suffer from herpes or all kinds of diseases there is an herbal remedy for the herpes virus. here is Dr. Hassan Contact him on his  mobile / WhatsApp +2349032582239     Email:  drhassanherbscure@gmail.com

    I am excited to share this testimony, I was 3 years ago diagnosed of  Herpes virus . My medical condition was heart broken because it was causing me so many our brakes, I was subjected to different medications by my medical doctor just to control the ourbrakes. Despite my visit to several doctors my health wasn't getting better, all they could say is for me to stay on the treatment. At the verge of giving up, I went to the internet to search for a treatment on my own at least. But I found a cure instead. In the internet, I read a testimony of a lady who had herpes. She shared an e-mail address of the Doctor. Luckily everything seemed to be okay after I took the Herbal Medicine. I wish I could say that’s the end of it because I haven't had any symptoms since then.  Do not expose yourself to more danger, use a herbal remedy that is safe and effective. If interested contact him via email address dr.abaherbalhome@gmail.com. or call +2348107155060
