Chinese and Angolan nationals remain in custody for attempted bribery of Namra official

Two foreign nationals, Mao Shuihua from China, and Zita Ngondo from Angola, have been arrested for attempting to bribe a Namibia Revenue Agency (Namra) official.

The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) issued a media statement on Thursday disclosing the details of the case. The accused individuals, although domiciled in Namibia, appeared in the Windhoek Magistrate Court on Wednesday following their arrest.

They are scheduled to return to court on Friday for their formal bail application.

“It is alleged that Shuihua, who was arrested on Monday, offered N$50 000 as a bribe to a Namra official, while Ngondo, who was arrested on 25 July, is suspected of facilitating the bribe offering from Shuihua to the Namra official,” the statement read.

The bribe was purportedly intended to persuade the Namra official to release funds amounting to N$6 million belonging to XCMG Namibia Pty (Ltd).

The account in question is reportedly under investigation and was previously frozen by Namra.

The ACC, in collaboration with Namra, conducted a sting operation that led to the arrests of the two individuals.
