Cyber-security ministry a waste of resources - experts

Setting up a fully-fledged ministry to deal with cyber-security would be a waste of money at a time when government is faced with cash-flow challenges already, leading analysts have voiced.

Suggestions to beef up cyber-security and putting a lid to the menace of cyber-criminals have been raised at the recently held Swapo Party congress.

These calls have culminated to a general accord of setting up a stand alone ministry that can tackle this obligation full time. 

Yet government’s wage bill has been lambasted as way to unsustainable, which has prompted voices of dissent opposing such a move.
