Army, navy, air force converge in Walvis

Thirty nine senior officers of the Namibian Defence Force, together with comrades from the Malawian and Zambian Defence Forces last week completed a Strategic Leadership Programme conducted by the Defence Academy of the United Kingdom and Cranfield University.
The course director, Colonel Martyn Forgrave of the UK Army said ‘This has been a highly successful and rewarding course; I have been impressed by the level of engagement by the delegates. It has been a real pleasure returning to Namibia’. Edward Hauanga, Director of Education and Training in the Namibian Ministry of Defence, stated: ‘The Strategic Leadership Programme has provided our students with the analytical tools to organise, evaluate, and efficiently build an outcome driven organisation.’ This was the second time a leadership development course was done by the Defence Academy for the Namibian Defence Force.
