- Prime Minister Hage Geingob announced this morning that recent oil exploration off the Walvis Bay coast has confirmed that the country has oil reserves, although not in commercial volumes.
Windhoek Natis officials arrested
This follows last week’s suspension by the Roads Authority of the facility’s manager, Nsozi Sikabongo, for allegedly issuing a fraudulent roadworthy certificate.
Namibian Sun was informed yesterday that two female officials working at Natis Valley in Windhoek were arrested at 15:30 for allegedly registering vehicles without a police clearance.
The arrests followed a complaint being laid at Natis Valley and a subsequent investigation.
The two employees, identified as Emily Paulus and Melda Kurangera, were taken into custody at their work stations.
They will be charged with corruption, sources told Namibian Sun. They will appear in court today.
Meanwhile, Sikabongo was suspended last week for allegedly issuing a roadworthy certificate for a vehicle that had not been inspected. This was allegedly detected on CCTV footage, which showed that the vehicle had not been tested. The owner of the vehicle apparently admitted that he had never taken it for testing at Natis Valley.
