WINDHOEK, 10 OCT (NAMPA) – The Ministry of Defence (MoD) on Wednesday rubbished information circulating on social media platforms about it offering study opportunities at the University of Namibia (UNAM).
In a media statement, acting Head of the Public Relations Division in the ministry, Petrus Shilumbu said the information being circulated on different social media platforms claiming that MoD is offering study opportunities to young Namibians at the ‘School of Military Science at UNAM Main Campus’ is fictitious.
“The factual information is that MoD is not recruiting or offering study sponsorship at this stage. Therefore, the information circulating in the public especially through social media is not true, nor does it originate from the MoD,” Shilumbu added.
He said the designer and distributor of such information has caused confusion to the public and the ministry condemns it in the strongest terms.
The statement further explained that all public announcements from the ministry are issued only by its Public Relations Division and no other unauthorised entity.
