Masua, Hon. Patients – Quotes:
“With ‘funding’ as a barrier, no Namibian student with the capacity, motivation, and qualification should be refused entry to higher education.”
“I don’t fall prey to likability politics because I don’t sing for a living; I work for it. So trust me when I say I’ll call you out if you’re not doing your job. Capacity must be matched with power. It is unquestionably a ‘business odd’ situation.”
