Controversial Bill Passed In Namibia

  • Peter Clottey

In Namibia, a recently proposed law that would regulate the operations of state-owned enterprises has been passed, despite objections by the main opposition. The opposition says the state-owned Enterprises Governance Council, which will consist of cabinet ministers, will not have the muscle needed to act swiftly because the implementation of their decisions will be subject to cabinet approval. The opposition said the ruling party failed to acknowledge their call to amend the bill. But the ruling party denied this claim. Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah is the Namibian minister of information. From the capital, Windhoek, she talks to reporter Peter Clottey about the new law.
