By Kuvee Kangueehi WINDHOEK HE is definitely no Prince William of the British Royal House because he does not have the looks that the usual paparazzi would like to capture. He could walk down Independence Avenue without making his royal presence felt unlike other VIPs. Keharanjo Nguvauva appears like any other ordinary young man on the street. But he is the possible heir to the throne of the Mbanderu Royal House. The twenty-year-old is the eldest son of Chief Nguvauva and his wife, and his name has popped up in Mbanderu circles now and again as possible successor to the throne. But speaking to him, he appears like a common young man. Keharanjo is currently studying in South Africa, Cape Town and for the first six months of this year attended a few courses at Damelin College before moving to the University of Cape Town in the second half of the year to start his legal studies. Keharanjo, who has completed a six-month course in Foundation of Law, will now enrol with the University of Pretoria for a four-year law degree. The soft-spoken Keharanjo says he is currently single and spends most of his time reading political books, newspapers or playing table tennis. The law student noted that he is currently reading a book called ‘The Great Thoughts’ and that the book is very informative. The 20-year-old Keharanjo grew up at Xaxa in northern Botswana close to the Ndove border post. He started his primary education at Beetsha Primary School before he moved to another primary school at Eetsha. He completed his primary education at Gumare Primary School. He had to move to many schools because his elder half brother whom he lived with was constantly changing jobs. Keharanjo, who resembles his father, started his junior secondary school at Sepopa in Botswana where he attended Form I to Form III. He moved to Maun for high school in 2004. At the beginning of this year, Keharanjo moved to South Africa and is currently in Namibia on a “special holiday”. Speaking about his family, Keharanjo says he believes strongly in extended families and proudly says he has over seven brothers and four sisters.
