NUST reappoints Du Toit as acting vice-chancellor

The Namibia University of Science and Technology (NUST) has re-appointed Morne Du Toit as Acting Vice-Chancellor for the next six months until a suitable replacement is found, a decision made by chancel members.

NUST chancel chairperson Florette Nicolette made the announcement on Wednesday during a media briefing that took place at the university's premises.

Nicolette said, the council members are confident that Du Toit will continue to lead the university during his tenure as he has done before to the best of his ability and called on all stakeholders to support with him.

She added that the recruitment of Vice-Chancellor will be concluded in the first half of 2020 with the specific date yet to be announced and promised to keep the public updated on the developments.

Du Toit was first appointed in March this year following the retirement of former Vice-Chancellor Tjama Tjivikua.
