SABA Re-Appoints Cecil Nguvauva As Secretary-General

The Southern Africa Broadcasters Association (SABA) the umbrella body that coordinates broadcasting organisations in Southern Africa, has announced the return of Mr Cecil Jarurakouje Nguvauva as its new Secretary General with immediate effect. This follows the exit of former office-holder, Ms Ellen Nanusses.

Nguvauva had initially held the position of SABA’s Secretary General from 2012 - 2014, where his stellar performance in promoting SABA ethos must have necessitated his return.

Commenting on his re-appointment, Nguvauva said he considers his return to SABA an honour and privilege to be able to serve the Southern African Broadcasters. He added that he would do all in his powers and ability to follow in the giant steps of his predecessor while serving the interest of SABA members to achieve world-class broadcasting standards.

The Southern African Broadcasting Association (SABA) is a membership-based organisation, set up to promote quality broadcasting and enhance professionalism across the Southern African region. Since its inauguration in 1993, SABA’s sphere of activity has been expanded to include community, private and commercial broadcasters as well.

SABA continually seeks to embrace stakeholders in the broadcasting industry including regulators, support service providers & suppliers of broadcast equipment and infrastructure with a focus to facilitate the interactive development of the SADC region broadcasting industry.

SABA President and Board of Directors Chairman, Mr Stanley Benjamin Similo, the Director General of the Namibia Broadcasting Corporation, added that he has faith in the Secretariat under the stewardship of Nguvauva. He said he has no reason for doubts of the expected deliverables as directed by the Annual General Meeting, which is the organisation’s highest decision-making structure.

The Namibian Broadcasting Corporation hosts the SABA Secretariat at its Windhoek offices for the 7th year running.
