involved in any suspected cases of corruption by resigning with immediate effect.
In a statement by the voters and residents of greater Gobabis, represented by the Coalition, any
employee that is involved in these cases, but chooses to stay in office and is then found guilty
through further detailed investigations, will face the consequences. “We will ensure that fairness but
also righteousness will prevail. We as the Coalition are appalled by all the suspected corruption and
maladministration of our beautiful town Gobabis,” the statement read.
The Coalition is expecting clear answers already posed to the previous municipal council, some
dating back to 2018. They want answers as to why nothing was done to stop the monthly losses
incurred on the sale of electricity and why the Office of the Governor choose not to act and also to
officially acknowledge the request from the current council to assist on ministerial and national level
with the electricity cut off threats from Nampower.
The Coalition also wants the deputy mayor to explain why there are current media reports of
investigations by the ACC, into maladministration of public funds during his tenure at the National
Youth Council when he was acting chair person.
“The time has come for the voters and residents of Gobabis to stand up and rid the leadership
structures of those that choose to ignore definite warning signs of financial losses and those with
self-enriching and criminal behaviour.”
