Nabukenya Muwonge is the vibrant life coach who reminded the members of the Economist Businesswomen Club that inner beauty and composure is just as important as caring for the face and the body.

“Outer beauty, while something we spend massive amounts of money and time on to maintain, is a depreciating asset. Its longevity is fleeting. It is fun and even convenient, but only while it lasts. In an increasingly image-obsessed society we have become experts at cultivating outer beauty and to some degree neglecting other aspects of the self.”
This deep reflection came from professional life coach, Nabukenya Muwonge recently when she addressed a breakfast meeting of the Economist Businesswomen Club at Arebbusch Travel Lodge in Windhoek.
Her topic “Inner Beauty. Start a Journey to Self Discovery and Healing” showed the ladies why it is important to work on cultivating their inner beauty and even though it might be fun and convenient to maintain their outer beauty, it does not last and it is but a fleeting gift.
“We all have the ingredients to achieve alignment in our beauty goals internally and externally,” said Muwonge.
She stated that cultivating inner beauty is a daily commitment that entails honouring all parts of the self and not just the external. “Spiritual practice enable us to nurture our spirits and gives us energy to serve our communities in other ways and embracing any opportunity to learn means we nurture our intellect,” she emphasised.
After her presentation she asked the ladies to share their own experiences how to cultivate inner beauty to make it shine through while not neglecting outer beauty. The meeting was unanimous that women should not always really on outer beauty and that it does not matter how good she looks to the world, but if a woman is not happy inside or if her personality is not that great, it will show eventually.
Muwonge worked as a training and development specialist in public health for eight years before becoming involved in coaching She works collaboratively with clients empowering them to transition successfully while achieving their life or career goals in alignment with their true purpose.
She prides herself on being an international coach who has had the privilege to coach clients in Africa and North America. Her special interest group is children, therefore she donates her time to child-centred initiatives regularly.
After the presentation the ladies were treated to luxury mini facial with a twist by Eleni Skincare Namibia.

Following reverse listing, public can now acquire shareholding in Paratus Namibia


20 February 2020, Windhoek, Namibia: Paratus Namibia Holdings (PNH) was founded as Nimbus Infrastructure Limited (“Nimbus”), Namibia’s first Capital Pool Company listed on the Namibian Stock Exchange (“NSX”).

Although targeting an initial capital raising of N$300 million, Nimbus nonetheless managed to secure funding to the value of N$98 million through its CPC listing. With a mandate to invest in ICT infrastructure in sub-Sahara Africa, it concluded management agreements with financial partner Cirrus and technology partner, Paratus Telecommunications (Pty) Ltd (“Paratus Namibia”).

Its first investment was placed in Paratus Namibia, a fully licensed communications operator in Namibia under regulation of the Communications Regulatory Authority of Namibia (CRAN). Nimbus has since been able to increase its capital asset base to close to N$500 million over the past two years.

In order to streamline further investment and to avoid duplicating potential ICT projects in the market between Nimbus and Paratus Namibia, it was decided to consolidate the operations.

Publishing various circulars to shareholders, Nimbus took up a 100% shareholding stake in Paratus Namibia in 2019 and proceeded to apply to have its name changed to Paratus Namibia Holdings with a consolidated board structure to ensure streamlined operations between the capital holdings and the operational arm of the business.

This transaction was approved by the Competitions Commission as well as CRAN, following all the relevant regulatory approvals as well as the necessary requirements in terms of corporate governance structures.

Paratus Namibia has evolved as a fully comprehensive communications operator in Namibia and operates as the head office of the Paratus Group in Africa. Paratus has established a pan-African footprint with operations in six African countries, being: Angola, Botswana, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa and Zambia.

The group has achieved many successes over the years of which more recently includes the building of the Trans-Kalahari Fibre (TKF) project, which connects from the West Africa Cable System (WACS) eastward through Namibia to Botswana and onward to Johannesburg. The TKF also extends northward through Zambia to connect to Dar es Salaam in Tanzania, which made Paratus the first operator to connect the west and east coast of Africa under one Autonomous System Number (ASN).

This means that Paratus is now “exporting” internet capacity to landlocked countries such as Zambia, Botswana, the DRC with more countries to be targeted, and through its extensive African network, Paratus is well-positioned to expand the network even further into emerging ICT territories.

PNH as a fully-listed entity on the NSX, is therefore now the 100% shareholder of Paratus Namibia thereby becoming a public company. PNH is ready to invest in the future of the ICT environment in Namibia. The public is therefore invited and welcome to acquire shares in Paratus Namibia Holdings by speaking to a local stockbroker registered with the NSX. The future is bright, and the opportunities are endless.
