In light of growing inequality within the country, Informanté can this week reveal that the University of Namibia (UNAM) has an extraordinarily skewed salary structure. The difference between the top earners and the lowest paid exceeds N$750 000 per year.Despite numerous problems dogging the highest tertiary institution in Namibia, ranging from sex for marks, over-enrolment, violence and murder as well as mal-administration, it seems that the upper echelons of staff at UNAM are enjoying extraordinarily high month-end salaries. UNAM employs about 1 161 workers throughout the country. Documents detailing the complete UNAM salary-structure and staff information indicate that the Vice-Chancellor, Lazarus Hangula, earns about N$840 000 per annum, benefits excluded, while the second highest paid staff member is Ellen Namhila who works as the University Librarian and earns about N$637 000 per annum.
