WINDHOEK – Roads Authority CEO Conrad Lutombi has been handed a new five-year contract, with the board saying he was rewarded for his hardwork, which includes exceeding organisational targets set for him.
“The RA board of directors is pleased to announce the re-appointment of Mr Conrad Mutonga Lutombi as the Authority’s CEO for a second term, effective 01 October 2018, for a 5-year period,” board chairperson Brian Katjaerua said in a statement late yesterday.
Describing Lutombi as an accomplished corporate leader, the board credited his stewardship for the development of a national road network that is currently rated “best on the African continent”.
“The board is confident that Mr Lutombi will continue to carry the RA brand with great responsibility and shrewd leadership and steer the organisation towards realising our mandate which is to manage Namibia’s national road network with a view to achieve a safe and efficient road sector,” Katjaerua said.
Confirmation of Lutombi’s new contract comes after weeks of heavy media speculation regarding his future at the company.
He was initially appointed as acting CEO of Roads Authority in 2010, before being appointed on a substantive basis in October 2013.
Heavily armed academically, Lutombi is a holder of a Master of Business Administration (MBA) from Steinbeis University, Berlin, Germany, Master of Science Degree in Leadership and Change Management from Leeds University in the United Kingdom, High Performance Leadership Programme from the University of Stellenbosch, undergraduate LLB Degree from the University of South Africa, B Tech Degree in Policing from the Tshwane University of Technology in South Africa and a National Diploma in Police Science from the Namibia University of Science and Technology (NUST), amongst others.
