Job Amupanda obtains Masters in Political Science
The young political activist plans to continue with a PhD in Political Science where he will focus on a comparative analysis of State Directed Development comparing Botswana and Namibia. “I plan to finish my PhD by the age of 27 so that I can become the first youngest Namibian to obtain a PhD in Political Science,”Amupanda informed the Economist.
He dedicated his Masters degree to black children in general, particularly to children of Omaalala village in northern Namibia where he grew up. “ This degree is for the children that went to school without shoes, as I once did – children that carried their books in plastic bags, as I once did – and those that faced difficult times of poverty and destitution, as I once did. Never surrender. Do not relent. Do not equivocate. One day you will attain the blue sky,” said Amupanda.
