The lawyer representing suspended City Police chief Abraham Kanime said the charges against his client are "bogus", and that they will win their case.
Windhoek chief executive officer Robert Kahimise suspended Kanime about two weeks ago on allegations of misusing council funds.
Kanime allegedly used public funds to sue his employer for not supporting the City Police.
Sisa Namandje, who is representing Kanime, told The Namibian yesterday that although he had not received the charges his client is facing, he still believes that they will not be factual.
"Whatever they will be, they are bogus," Namandje, who represented Kanime when he sued the municipality, said.
According to Namandje, the municipality's finance department approved the invoices about the case where Kanime sued his employer.
Kanime, the lawyer said, did not do anything behind his employer's back. Namandje said the suspension was just a tactic for the municipality to get rid of Kanime.
"Yes, they are bogus charges. We will hit them all the way," Namandje said, adding that he will force the city to drop the charges.
When The Namibian asked Kahimise yesterday regarding the invoices, he said that he would not be discussing staff issues and therefore cannot confirm whether the finance department received the invoices.
Namandje noted that what the City of Windhoek is doing is unfair, and they are even paying for corrupt personnel within the municipality.
The Namibian reported this week that the City of Windhoek paid close to N$1 million towards the legal fees of its legal adviser, Benedictus Ngairorue, who is facing a corruption case.
Ngairorue, a close Kahimise ally, is implicated for his role in an account of a house that had N$54 000 municipal debt arrears being moved into a paid-up account to avoid the auctioneer's hammer. This happened in 2013 when Ngairorue was a debt manager.
Kahimise stated in a report that the city at the time had a policy which allows for legal aid to workers who are sued while employed by the city.
City councillor Ian Subasubani wrote a letter on Monday to the chief executive, requesting him to explain the payment of legal fees for Ngairorue, and whether it was true that the legal adviser who is facing fraud charges is set to be promoted to a chief legal adviser for the municipality.
