EES calls out corruption in Namibia

German-based, Namibian musician EES has added his voice in condemning corruption in the country and also called for the upliftment of everyone’s standard of living.

“We are the second smallest population in the world with vast resources and very rich but we just never get it done in Namibia. Money disappears very fast in Namibia with all the corruption,” he said.

He also questioned whether the recently announced government grant of N$5.5 million for the arts industry will reach its intended beneficiaries.

” Well I saw recently on a WhatsApp platform where I am with most of the musicians when this link of the money was posted but whether that will reach people I dont know money disappears in Namibia,” he said.

EES mentioned the current corruption bust now known as Fishrot which has landed two former ministers (Sackey Shangala and Bernard Esau) in remand prison together with their accomplices in remand prison over alleged dodgy trading in the fishing industry as the worst case of corruption.

He also told unwrap.online during a live interview on the weekly show #unwraphour that he has also been snubbed funding from corporates on racial lines.

” I don’t like to talk about it but whenever I have asked for funding in Namibia I have been turned down because of the colour of my skin,” he said.
