Geingob Orders Fishing Sector Probe Ahead of Namibia Polls

Namibia votes in a general election on November 27, at a time the ruling Swapo has been shaken by the scandal where two cabinet ministers resigned after they were accused of corruption. Fisheries minister Bernhard Esau and justice minister Sacky Shanghala allegedly abused their positions to secure massive kickbacks in return for securing fishing licenses, including for Iceland's biggest seafood company, Samherji. Esau has been arrested following corruption and money-laundering allegations.
