ACC makes good on its promise

The Anti-Corruption Commission of Namibia (ACC) announced in April it will be “knocking on doors soon”. Within days the first arrest followed. The ACC confirmed the arrest of a Karibib town council property clerk, Jafet Garoeb (52) for alleged corrupt activities since 2013.
Garoeb is accused of having used his position as a property clerk to illegally sell erven without council’s authorisation – in return for payment. He allegedly also forged allocation of land letters to community members who were not on the list of approved beneficiaries of the Ministry of Lands and Resettlement.
The case against Garoeb was reported in 2013 and after meticulous investigation his arrest followed.
Garoeb made his first appearance in the Karibib magistrate’s court on 2 May and was granted bail of N$3 000. The case was postponed to 5 June.
The ACC is at the centre of several investigations in Erongo. These include investigations in Usakos, Omaruru and Walvis Bay.
