Meet Patience Masua, Youngest Member of Parliament in Namibia

At 22 years old, Namibia’s President Dr Hage G. Geingob appointed her to serve in the National Assembly. Patience entered mainstream student politics and activism in university, primarily through her newspaper opinion pieces and then serving in the student union as Faculty Representative for the University of Namibia (UNAM) Faculty of Law. Later she ran for the position of Speaker of Student Parliament of the UNAM SRC and won it in 2019. Thereafter she served as Secretary-General for the Namibia National Students Organization – Official.


To all young, female aspiring leaders you too can make it. We believe in you.
