Lucius Sumbwanyambe Mahoto Correctional Service Training College
The Lucius Sumbwanyambe Mahoto Correctional Service Training College is situated about two kilometres from the central business district of Omaruru Town. Its objective is to develop capacity amongst correctional officers.
The Training College is named after the late Lucius Sumbwanyambe Mahoto, one of the service’s early pioneers for his outstanding work in laying a strong founding upon which we now continue to build. He joined the NCS on 01 June 1992 as Control Social Worker at the National Head Quarters. On 11 July 1994 due to his outstanding performance, he was assigned additional responsibilities to Head the Directorate: Training Specialized and General Services. In September 1994, in recognition and appreciation of his capabilities he was promoted to the rank of CSP.
He died on 28 December 1999 in a tragic accident together with his wife and his lastborn son who was less than a year old. Even after 13 years we still continue to draw strength and wisdom from his work ethic, courage and creativity.
The training college consist of various infrastructural developments amongst others; the auditorium, gym hall, administration block, accommodation block for senior and junior officers, a sport field, dining halls for senior and junior officers, a parade ground, swimming pool, official residents, a library and a logistic block.
The construction of the Training College started in 1999. It became operational in 2005.
Before its establishment, we were assisted by other sister institutions to conduct training, amongst others; The Military Training School, The Israel Patrick Iyambo Police Training College, Windhoek Central Prison and many others.
Since it became operational, a total number of 38 courses took place attended by 1889 correctional officers.
It was inaugurated by His Excellency Hifikepunye Pohamba, the President of the Republic of Namibia on 27 March 2013.
