The City of Windhoek has appointed Ludwig Narib to act as the chief executive officer for three months.
Narib steps in for Robert Kahimise, who was suspended on Monday for allegedly awarding himself a study loan without the council's approval.
Kahimise faces further charges of gross breach of corporate governance.
Windhoek deputy mayor, Teckla Uwanga, made the announcement today.
Uwanga said Narib's appointment was effective from Thursday until when the "smooth investigation" into the allegations against Kahimise was completed.
Narib is the municipality's strategic executive responsible for infrastructure, water and technical services.
