Armed forces to benefit from library donation
A small delegation from the British Peace Support Team (BPST) based in South Africa last week visited the new site of the Namibian Command and Staff College in Okahandja to present a significant number of study books to this defence learning institution.
The BPST invests in assisting regional military institutions to build capacity in their institutions through encouraging professionalism through education and training activities. The British delegation, headed up by Colonel Simon West, were hosted by the Commandant of the Namibian Command and Staff College, Brigadier Simon Titus (NDF) and the Chief of Staff Colonel John (Robbie) Robinson (NDF).
The Commandant thanked the British team for the donation of books that will greatly assist the opportunity for learners to study relevant publications on such topics as Countering Extremism, African and Global Military Strategy, United Nations and Peace Support Operations and the Changing Nature of Future Warfare.
Brigadier Simon Titus said, “This is a very generous and positive donation which will definitely enhance the learning opportunity for the students on the Advanced Course”.
On the same occasion, Colonel West stated,”I look forward to supporting the College further in the future in order to help with best practice and programme harmonization across SADC Colleges. I hope that both students and staff at the College will benefit from this library donation”.
