The City of Windhoek newly appointed chief executive officer Moses Matyayi has started work, the city council announced on Tuesday.
Matyayi was appointed by the Windhoek City Council in May.
Before his recent appointment, Matyayi served as the chief executive officer (CEO) of the Otjiwarongo municipality and also the Otavi Town Council from 2010 to 2020.
According to the Windhoek City Council, Matyayi brings knowledge and experience in public service, business administration and leadership.
“He holds a master of arts degree in human resources management from London Metropolitan University in the United Kingdom, as well as a bachelor of technology in human resources from the Namibia University of Science and Technology,” the city council said.
In addition to his professional achievements, Matyayi’s leadership skills have been honed through his various roles, including his tenure as the president of the Namibian Association of Local Authority Officials since 2021.
He has also served as the chairperson of the Central North Regional Electricity Distributor board of directors and a board member of the Namibian Broadcasting Corporation (NBC).
The city has been without a substantive head since November 2020, when its previous CEO, Robert Kahimise, resigned.
