Two Namibia ministers resign following corruption allegations
Their resignations come after local and international media exposed the two and others of corruption.
In a statement President Hage Geingob stated that "following the severity of the allegations, Fisheries Minister Bernhard Esau and Justice Minister Sacky Shanghala had tendered their resignations".
According to a local newspaper The Namibian, wikileaks documents pinpointed Essau, Shanghala as masterminds of a Namibian fishing licence donated to the Angolan government but ended up benefiting a few individuals.
The newspaper reports that documents show that this fishing scheme could involve as much as 2.5 billion Namibian dollars. ■
