Windhoek is governed by a multiparty Council of 15 Councillors. The current Council brings together 11 councillors representing the ruling SWAPO Party, 1 NUDO representative and the RDP/RP Coalition represented by 3 councillors. The City of Windhoek is a one constituency municipal council. This means all 15 councillors, represent the whole municipal area as a one constituency. Because Namibia has not adopted full time or executive local councillorship system, city councillors are part time public office bearers. A number of them hold professional fulltime employment in the public and private sector.

Born in Okapanda village in 1970, Fransina’s political career began way back in the eights with student upraising activities; which saw her joining the Namibia National Student Organization (NANSO). In 1989 she was part of the Mweshipandeka High School students who organized the mass national demonstration for the withdrawal of the Apartheid South African forces of occupation from Namibia.

Following the implementation of the UN Resolution 435 for the independence of Namibia later in 1989, Fransina was one of the student activists assisting with the welcoming of returning Namibians from exile. She was part of the group entrusted with the integration and connecting returnees to their families. From this humble beginning, in 2006 Fransina was elected as a Coordinator for SWAPO Party’s Women Council in Kakurukaze Mungunda branch and was re-elected in 2010.  During her time with the party’s women Council, she was a staunch advocate of women economic emancipation and empowerment, lobbying for the @PUT HER UP@ approach, and encouraging women to take part in political and economical activities.

Fransina is a teacher by profession with experience spanning back to 1999 when she was first appointed at Olaf Palme Primary School. She holds as B. Degree in Education and a Higher Diploma in Secondary Education from the University of Namibia. She has a wealth of experiences in project management, social sciences, marketing and sustainable development, as well as Agenda 21 for world city projects.

As a community activist, Fransina set herself to addressing Windhoek community needs during her five year mandate; focusing on:

  • access to affordable decent housing
  • improvement in the public transport system.
  • creation of job opportunities and promotion small and informal businesses
