See Beautiful Pictures Of One Of Africa's Youngest Appointed Minister, Emma Inamutila Theofelus

For a brilliant 23-year-old who is fresh from law school, there are quite a good number of prospects. But it is highly unlikely than any of those prospects would have something to do with becoming an actual member of a country’s parliament as a minister appointed by the President.

Well not for Emma Inamutila Theofelus who (born 1996 or 1997) is a Namibian politician. She was appointed Namibia’s deputy minister of information, communication and technology in March 2020, as part of Hage Geingob's second term cabinet. In her role, she was tasked with assisting in leading public communication on preventative steps against Namibia's COVID19 pandemic.

At the time of cabinet appointment, Theofelus was age 23 and one of Africa's youngest cabinet ministers. Prior to her political appointment, she completed a law degree at the University of Namibia. She is also a board member of the National Council of Higher Education.In 2020 she was judged to be one of 100 most influential African women, the youngest person on this list.

She held position at Nanso High School as Deputy Mayor and Deputy Speaker of the Children’s Parliament of Namibia.She has also worked with various youth groups, such as Global Shapers Windhoek. She shone in those ranks and her effort appear to have earned her a spot in the nation’s parliament.. 

Truely she is influential, because of people like her, we still have hope that education is The Key, feel free to hit the like and follow button for more interesting news to come by, drop your comments too and visit to verify.
