A standoff between the Ministry of Higher Education, the Namibia Students Financial Assistance Fund (NSFAF) and student representative bodies related to the acquisition of laptops for homeschooling students, appears to have been settled.
As part of Government's COVID-19 emergency support programme, tertiary students were to receive assistance in acquiring laptops through NSFAF.
A number of student representatives spoke out against what they termed Government's implicating them in financial decisions, without consulting them.
