Namibia’s youngest parliamentarian, 26 year-old Inna Hengari, has challenged President Hage Geingob and other African leaders to take salary cuts or go without, like some of their peers on the continent. “”There’s a recent trend in southern Africa and the politics of Sub-Saharan Africa in most countries. You look at Rwanda, you look at Zambia; the president of Zambia, Hakainde Hichilema, has gone for eight months without a salary. President Paul Kagame [Rwanda], when he came into power, took a salary cut as a sign and symptom of nobility, and to instill a sense of sharing among the citizens,” Hengari said, asking if Namibians could ever look forward to the same.
