Dimbulukeni 'Dee' Nauyoma (born 1992) is a Namibian youth activist who along with Job Amupanda and George Kambala co-founded a radical youth movement known as the Affirmative Repositioning in November 2014. Prior to the formation of the Affirmative Repositioning, he served in the SWAPO Youth League until 2014. From 2015 to 2018, he served as Secretary General of the Namibia National Students Organisation.

Personal life

Nauyoma attended the University of Namibia. He holds an advanced diploma in Banking, Finance & Credit from the Namibian Institute of Bankers (IOB) where he served as Student Representative Council president. He was one of the SWAPO Party Youth League leaders who were suspended and expelled from the party for occupying a plot in an upmarket Windhoek suburb.

Affirmative Repositioning

In November 2014, the three AR youth leaders of Amupanda, Kambala and Nauyoma occupied land in an affluent Klein Windhoek suburb as a means to demand land from the City of Windhoek municipality. They named their plot Erf 2014 to coincide with the year of action.

In 2016, the Namibian government announced plans to build a new Parliament. Thereafter, the Affirmative Repositioning movement began to mobilise young Namibians for a June 16 protest against the decision to build the parliament saying resources could be used in more important areas in which the country faced critical problems.
