Tourism ministry investigates NTB

THE environment ministry is investigating the Namibia Tourism Board following negative media reports about millions of dollars lost in the Kora awards saga and thousands given to an unregistered company owned by the parastatal’s chairperson.

In 2014, The Namibian reported that former NTB chairperson Erica Akuenje received a double payment for subsistence and travel on one trip. Akuenje received N$50 000.

Just last year, The Namibian reported that current chairperson Paul Brinkmann’s company, Wild Africa Travel, received contracts worth N$680 000 from the NTB between June and December 2016 without them having being put out on public tender.
