Former New Era CEO Audrin Mathe has been saved from wandering in the wilderness by Prime Minister Saara Kuugongelwa-Amadhila.
Mathe who has had running battles with his former employer new era publications over a vehicle has been appointed the executive director in the ministry of sports, youth and national services.
The appointment comes a few weeks after Mathe and New Era agreed to let go of the court case that had been running for close to a year.
Mathe is a known martial arts sportsman.
In the past months, Mathe was linked to the Nampa CEO job and he also tried his luck with MVA.
He was Hage Geingob’s speechwriter when the president was the prime minister. His stay at New Era has become very questionable after the corporation’s poor performance during his time.
Mathe refused to talk, and referred questions to the appointing authority, while the sports minister Agnes Tjongarero said she was not aware of the appointment.
