Former staff members of the defunct SME Bank are demanding compensation from government, almost two years after the Bank of Namibia successfully applied to the Windhoek High Court to have it closed following the disappearance of more than N$200 million, which was purportedly “invested” in South Africa. 

Government says it plans to raise between N$500 and N$600 million through the proposed once-off 2 percent national voluntary contribution by all Namibians in order to mitigate the effects of the drought that is currently ravaging large parts of the country. 

Government has with immediate effect banned all public entities from procuring selected goods and services from foreign sources and companies in a move aimed at enabling local participation in the economy and enhancing domestic productive capacity.

 Namibia Diamond Trading Company (NDTC) CEO, Brent Eiseb, is alleged to have ordered the suspension of four key staff members that partnered with companies that were bidding for the multi-million dollar government valuation tender, the Windhoek Observer has been told.
