KEETMANSHOOP: The disciplinary hearings of more than 280 employees of the NovaNam Fishing company who are suspected to have stolen company fish, is continuing in Lüderitz.
The employees are suspected to have stolen 474 bags of fish from the company on 29 June this year, and were suspended from 30 June until 31 July, when the disciplinary hearings started.
One of the employees, who asked to remain anonymous, told Nampa upon enquiry today that the disciplinary committee has already finished the hearings of the supervisors last week, and started with the rest of the employees this week.
This employee could, however, not say what consequences they might face if found guilty.
NovaNam general manager David Pokolo was not available for comment yesterday and early today.
2 (WINDHOEK) – Namibia has sensational tourism assets, but there are some bottlenecks that are chocking the tourism industry.
This was said by World Bank official Hannah Messerli during the one-day World Bank and National Planning Commission (NPC) seminar on ‘Policy Notes on Growth and Employment in Namibia’ that took place in the capital yesterday.
She noted that Namibia has sensational tourism assets, and now requires a dynamic response that matches these assets and exploit them for economic development, with sure attention to social and environmental matters.
Among the bottlenecks, Messerli singled out Government and parastatal institutions involved with tourism which have overlapping and conflicting mandates.
She noted that there is too much State involvement in commercial production, adding that corporate governance of State-owned enterprises is often ineffective.
