Basic Education Minister, Katrina Hanse-Himarwa, who is facing corruption charges in connection with the allocation of mass housing units while she was the Governor of Hardap Region in 2014, has told the Windhoek High Court that she did not commit any crime nor did she temper with the list of Mass Housing beneficiaries.

She told Judge Christie Liebenberg on Monday that the docket from the Anti-Corruption Commission is full of confusing information.
"There is a desperate attempt to charge me even if there is no evidence I have committed crime," Hanse-Himarwa said. 
It is alleged that she allocated two houses to her own relatives at the expense of two other beneficiaries.
