The delegation led by the Board Chairperson Dr Catherine Beukes-Amiss also consisted of Managing Director, Frans Ndoroma, as well as members of the board and other key personnel of the state-owned company.
H.E.President Hifikepunye Pohamba praised Telecom Namibia for the manner in which the state-owned entity is fulfilling its mandate and living up to expectation.
“I am happy and satisfied with what Telecom Namibia is doing.
I am saying happy while believing in the philosophy that Rome was not built in a day. Whatever you go, even outside of this country, you will see what Telecom Namibia has done,” the President said.
President Pohamba expressed happiness with the achievements but was equally impressed to see women in the company pursuing careers in the fields of science, technology and engineering.
He said through his extensive travelling around the country he had seen and experienced the telecommunications infrastructure development by Telecom Namibia.
During the course of the visit, the delegation briefed the Head of State on the work of Telecom Namibia to achieve the objective of the Fourth National Development Plan (NDP-4) in the area of ICT. They also briefed him on projects which included the rolling out of the government’s regional ICT hubs, the high-speed (3G/4G LTE) network, strengthening and expansion of the national transport infrastructure, regional and international connectivity for the country, as well as school Internet connectivity through the programme run by the Xnet Development Alliance Trust.
