Namibia's 2016 Mandela Washington Fellowship representative, Mandela Kapere encouraged Namibian youth to have a paradigm shift from the first industrial revolution of agriculture to the fourth industrial revolution of digitalisation.
Kapere said youth should welcome the new revolution, during a discussion held by the United States of America Embassy under the theme 'Emerging Voices' in Windhoek.
Kapere further noted that the economic participation in Namibia has a first world banking system and first world financial system, but that the vast majority of the people are financially excluded.
He also argued that civic participation and democracy in Namibia are parallel to underdevelopment, which is a unique challenge as the society is impatiently tuned to their rights and privileges.
According to Alphons Koruhama, another participant in the discussion, Namibian youth in the fourth industrial revolution should embrace the visionary leadership that thinks of the next generation, rather than a political leader who anticipates election and self-enrichment.
