Former Veterans PS Amagulu Dies

FORMER Ministry of Veterans’ Affairs permanent secretary, William Ndeutapo Amagulu, has died. He was 61.

His death was confirmed by Minister of Information and Communication Technology, Joel Kaapanda, who could not provide more details at the time. Media reports however stated that Amagulu died at Katutura State Hospital.

Amagulu had been at the helm of the war veterans’ ministry since its creation on 4 October 2006 and pioneered most of its programmes and projects which addressed the socio-economic needs of former liberation struggle fighters, until his retirement in 2013.

It was because of his struggle credentials and pedigree that the government put him at the helm of veterans’ ministry during a time when war veterans were at logger heads with government.
