The Ministry of Defence and Veterans Affairs has dismissed an advertisement circulating on social media claiming that the Namibian Defence Force is recruiting employees, saying it is fake. The Namibia press agency reports that the fake advertisement bears the logo of the NDF and encourages eligible Namibians between the age of 18 and 25 to apply for employment as recruits in all of the NDF arms, while saying it will make an exception for older recruits who possess special qualifications in certain fields. The Ministry however explained that the brochure in question was downloaded from the ministry’s website and edited and urged the public not to be misled.
