Emma Theofelus , 23, and Law graduate has been appointed the Country’s youngest Minister.
The appointment of Theofilus by President Hage Geingob as Deputy Information and Technology minister also made her the Southern African country’s youngest member of parliament.
Theofilus is widely known in the Namibian civil society fraternity as “highly capable” and committed young activist and Leader. 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,” as reported by The Namibian
“I am excited. I am told I will be used as a benchmark for young people. I take on the challenge like I have taken other leadership roles. It is uncharted territory and political space but I am ready to take on the challenge,” she added in a separate interview.
