It is with utmost sadness and deepest regret that Council, Management and Staff of International University of Management announce the passing of IUM’s Vice Chairperson Dr. Helen Nkandi-Shiimi. Dr. Nkandi Shiimi was an exceptional leader who was highly passionate about health and education in Namibia and deeply committed to African development in general.

As the Vice Chairperson, Dr Nkandi Shiimi played a pivotal role in the growth of IUM especially when it came to formulating of policies. Reflecting on her contribution to the university, the Founder and Chairperson of IUM, Prof. David R. Namwandi stated that Dr Nkandi Shiimi was a dedicated, reliable and hardworking person who did things with passion and grace.

IUM and its fraternity will never forget her passion, her enthusiasm about everything in life and her wonderful influence. Her mentorship and guidance will be greatly missed.

Our prayers go out to the family of our great Governing Council Vice-Chairperson and the nation at large over this great loss.

Forever in our hearts!

Dr. Helen Nkandi-Shiimi
