Fishcor's finance general manager Paulus Ngalangi defended his decision to transport a South African Covid-19 patient, who is an alleged fugitive, from the border to Windhoek.
Ngalangi is accused of helping the Namibian-born Immanuel David, who also has South African citizenship, to travel from the south to Windhoek.
Ngalangi, who acted as chief executive officer of National Fishing Corporation of Namibia (Fishcor) until yesterday, issued a media statement last night in which he denied any wrongdoing.
"I picked up the gentleman in Noordoewer at the Engen service station on the Namibian side of the border and proceeded to drive to Windhoek," Ngalangi says.
Ngalangi is Fishcor's finance chief and was in charge of the parastatal's purse when more than N$75 million was allegedly diverted from the national fishing corporation to fund Swapo, political leaders and business people.
