Pretoria News - - BUSINESS REPORT | WORLD -

WINDHOEK: The Namib­ian govern­ment will con­tinue re­view­ing laws and poli­cies to close loop­holes that make laws and sys­tems sus­cep­ti­ble to ex­ploita­tion, Pres­i­dent Hage Gein­gob said yes­ter­day.

Speak­ing at the open­ing of the 2020 le­gal year, Gein­gob said this would be done to curb cor­rup­tion

“I reaf­firm our com­mit­ment to tackle the evil that is cor­rup­tion, by de­mand­ing eth­i­cal man­age­ment and ad­min­is­tra­tion of the state’s af­fairs by all state func­tionar­ies… Ro­bust pro­cesses, sys­tems and trans­par­ent in­sti­tu­tions act as the first line of de­fence against cor­rup­tion.”
