Namibia University of Science and Technology Deputy Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs Andrew Niikondo has said there is a need to strengthen security on campuses and surrounding areas following recent attacks on students.

Niikondo has said that this needs to be taken not only as an eye opener but also as a warning that students are vulnerable to these sorts of attacks.

“Even if the incident took place outside, the campus security needs to be strengthened in order to avoid a repeat of such incidents. We are responsible for every student’s safety on campus and definitely we need to relook the security issues. I am saying that this can happen anywhere but as far as institutes of higher learning are concerned students come here for their future and these environments are supposed to be the safest including a few blocks outside the premises of the campus,” he said.
