WINDHOEK 19 JAN (NAMPA) – The Khomas Regional Council has appointed Clement Mafwila as its new chief regional officer (CRO) with effect 01 January 2015.
This was revealed by the council’s Public Relations Officer (PRO), Lydia Atushe Shifa in a media statement issued to Nampa on Monday.
Mafwila’s appointment follows the resignation of Dr Ben Mulongeni as CRO in 2013.
Mulongeni allegedly resigned after receiving a tip-off from some councillors about plans to suspend him for poor performance.
Mafwila holds a Master’s Degree in Public Policy and Administration, specialising in decentralisation and public sector spectrum reform.
“I am pleased and ready to navigate the Khomas Regional Council through the rapidly changing political environment to achieve its mission of becoming a well-developed, knowledgeable and peaceful region in Namibia,” he was quoted as saying in the statement.
Before his appointment, Mafwila served the council in different capacities for 11 years, including director of general services.
He also served as Acting CRO between 2009 and 2010 before his predecessor’s appointment.
