'Its broad base, drawing upon Commonwealth common law jurisdictions is a welcome approach, given the dearth of material on the subject in Namibia and avoiding heavy reliance on South African sources.'

'Administrative law represents the ‘engine room’ of constitutional law…  Administrative law is relevant in the daily lives of most people, since thce of public administration on everyone within modern societies governed by law under a constitution, such as Namibia, has truly become pervasive.'
