Redirecting a decade of media industry experience to a new position

Jethro Kwenani, head of corporate communication at the Motor Vehicle Accident (MVA) Fund, has over ten years of experience in the media industry, with a bachelor's degree and an honours degree from the Namibian University of Science and Technology (NUST).

He holds a film and television certification from the Metropolia University of Applied Sciences in Helsinki, Finland.

"I have gained valuable experience through my roles at various organisations, including NUST, the Global Fund, the Meat Corporation of Namibia and the Namibia Training Authority," he explained.



On duty

Kwenani described his work at the MVA Fund, which began in August 2023, as one of "many rewards."

He said there were various new systems and processes that he had to learn, but the overall work environment is one of the best.

"I am a creative aficionado and a team player. Wearing multiple hats isn't simply something I'm used to; I genuinely love it. I thrive in a setting where every weekday brings new challenges."

A typical day for him encompasses a varied set of responsibilities focused on facilitating effective communication both within and outside the organisation.

It can include, but is not limited to, a diverse set of tasks such as morning briefings, managing media relations, overseeing content creation, project management and other facets integral to being effective in the role.

"I am a hands-on individual who thrives on immersing myself in the heart of a project. While precise planning is essential for the success of any event or project, my greatest love is being actively involved and ensuring that tasks are completed effectively and to the required standards."

The MVA Fund is deeply committed to employee well-being and work-life balance and is constantly looking for new ways to promote a healthy balance.

"Therefore, I definitely feel I am afforded that in my current role," Kwenani said.



Embracing innovation and passion

There are various accomplishments he is proud of, but few people are aware that he formerly held the Namibian record for indoor high jump at 1.95 m during his athletic career.

Having to represent his country at important events like the World Universiade will always be a privilege for him, he said.

Reflecting on his career fills him with gratitude that extends beyond personal accomplishments – it's making a positive impact and contributing to something meaningful.

Excitement for the future propels him to stay adaptable, embrace innovation and empower others. "To those forging their paths, pursue your passions relentlessly, stay true to your values and view setbacks as stepping stones to success."
