According to NAMCOR, Shikongo’s remarkable achievements extend beyond his executive role, his proven leadership abilities and industry insights have earned him the respect of peers and colleagues alike.

A registered Professional Engineer in Namibia and South Africa, Shikongo’s educational background is equally impressive. He holds a Master of Engineering degree (mechanical) from the University of Southampton – UK (1988), with merit.

He further expanded his skill set by completing a Senior Management Development Programme with the University of Stellenbosch Business School in South Africa in 1996, an Executive Development Programme with Ashridge in 1999, and a Senior Executive Programme with the London Business School in October 2006.
