Zambezi tourism flop ‘needs’ N$35 million

The state-owned Zambezi Water Front Tourism Park in north-eastern Namibia, which has already gobbled up N$180 million in taxpayers’ money, could cost an additional N$35 million to reopen.

The government shut the tourist centre, set on 21 000 hectares along the Zambezi River at Katima Mulilo in the Zambezi region, in 2016 after allegations of rampant maladministration and corruption surfaced.

A government investigation last year found that around N$50 million of the N$180 million splashed on the project cannot be accounted for. No one has yet been held accountable.
