Namibian Correctional Service Commissioner-General, Raphael Hamunyela commended Namforce for its proactive approach and fast commitment to addressing CSC’s needs. He highlighted the significance of the partnership in enhancing financial education and awareness not only among CSC staff but also across the nation.

“This event marks a significant milestone in our collaborative efforts and commitment to addressing the needs of our correctional officers,” he remarked, emphasizing the commitment to providing financial protection through innovative approaches.

Senior Chief Correctional Officer, Gideon Shikeshu, lauded the partnership for its affordability and flexibility, emphasizing its tailored approach to the needs of Namibians.

“Apart from it being affordable on the market, it also has flexibility for us to choose our option of preference,” he added.

This partnership signifies a step forward in ensuring the financial security and well-being of Namibians, particularly those serving in critical sectors such as the correctional service.
