Deputy Prime Minister Netumbo Nandi-Ndaitwah says youth unemployment remains the biggest challenge facing young Namibians. Projected at 46.1 percent, the skyrocketing unemployment levels in the country led to recommendations and mitigating measures by the African Peer-Review Mechanism, amongst others, the streamlining of youth initiatives within government, the mainstreaming of technical and vocational training within the education system, and the enactment of legislation to revive formal internship programs in the country.
