The Head of Lending for the past two years, Martin Inkumbi was catapulted to the Acting CEO position of the Development Bank of Namibia at the beginning of this this year as a stop gap measure for a period between six months and 12 months, but five and a half months into the job, advertisement for the position has not been done.
