Hon. Masua completed her high school at Delta Secondary School Windhoek where she served as Deputy Head Girl in the Learners Representative Council.
She obtained a Bachelor of Laws (LLB) from the University of Namibia (UNAM).

Hon. Patients Masua – Quotes:
“No Namibian student with the capacity, willingness and qualification should be denied access to higher education with ‘funding’ as a barrier.”
“I don’t succumb to the politics of likability because I don’t sing for my supper, I work for it. So trust that if you are not performing as per your mandate, I will call it out. Capacity has to meet power. ‘Business unusual’ it surely is.”
Join us in celebrating her.
