Namibia wins the right to host WorldSkills Africa 2020

Namibia has won the right to host WorldSkills Africa 2020.
Namibia was one of two African countries bidding to host the continental competition, with Ghana also having submitted a bid.
Following presentations by the two bidding countries at the WorldSkills 2019 competition, underway in the Russian city, Kazan, Namibia pulled an overwhelming 14 votes against the three by Ghana.
The chief executive officer (CEO) of the Namibia Training Authority (NTA), Jerry Beukes, who led the bid presentation,  expressed delight and joy at Namibia's successfull bid, pointing out that the real work starts now.
In an earlier interview, Higher Education, Science and Technology Minister, Dr Itah Kandjii-Murangi, told NBC News that Namibia have the necessary infrastructure, experience and expertise to host such a high level event.
Namibia is expected to host the WorldSkills Africa Competition during the last quarter of 2020.
The WorldSkills movement sees skills development in Africa has an important priority and a key focus to engage global partners and stakeholders.
