Some lecturers, employed by The International University of Management, have expressed dismay over the university’s decision not to renew their employment contracts at the expense of their foreign counterparts. The aggrieved Namibian lecturers claim that the IUM management last year gave them a notice that their five-year contracts would not be renewed for the 2022 academic year. They allege that the institution is sidelining them at the expense of foreigners whose contracts have allegedly been renewed. Contacted for comment by the New Era newspaper, IUM director for marketing, communication and stakeholders’ engagement Gerry Munyama said an employment contract is a matter between the employer and employee, refusing to discuss such matters on media platforms.
