About the United Nations Institute for Namibia (UNIN)

The United Nations Institute for Namibia (UNIN) was an educational body set up by the United Nations Council for Namibia in Lusaka, Zambia on 26 August 1976. A brainchild of the then United Nations Commissioner for Namibia, Sean MacBride, the idea of UNIN was to ensure that Namibians were educated by the time Namibia got independent. This was to ensure that Namibians could take up meaningful roles in an independent Namibia. 

Namibia at that time did not have its own tertiary education system but was using the apartheid Bantu Education system, which, by design was inferior and meant specifically for blacks in South Africa and Namibia. Thus, in 1974, the United Nations Council for Namibia under Sean MacBride suggested a tertiary education institution for Namibia in Zambia. The institute was inaugurated as UNIN on 26 August 1976 by the then President of Zambia, Kenneth Kaunda. The institute was led by the then Director and current Namibia’s third President, Dr Hage Godfried Geingob.

UNIN was funded by the United Nations Fund for Namibia, for a short period, as well as financial support received from individual government donations and private organizations such as the Ford Foundation.

The institute was closed in September 1990, with its documents, records and photographic collection being transferred to the University of Namibia Library, Archives Unit.

When I initially commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get three emails with the same comment.
Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
Thanks a lot!
