Namibia’s Youngest Member of Parliament


Emma Theofilus

was recently appointed deputy minister of Namibia’s Ministry of Informatio­n and Technology.

The 23-year-old law graduate became Namibia’s youngest Member of Parliament.

Her ascendancy to the deputy ministeria­l position has had many people question her experience and suitabilit­y for the post, but Theofilus confidentl­y shot down such assertions.

“Anything I set myself to and any environmen­t I want to work in, I can do so [sic], the issue of inexperien­ce does not hold any water,” she stressed.
