Deputy Minister of Mines and Energy, Kornelia Shilunga, says that more than ever, Africa must lend its voice to the growing discourse of the continent’s participation in the energy industry, which demonstrates the potential opportunity for alleviating poverty. This, the Deputy Minister said, as a lack of access to clean, cheap, and sustainable energy has had devastating results for Namibia and the entire Sub-Saharan region, constraining people’s social and economic progression.
