The Windhoek High Court has dismissed former managing director of the Namibia Wildlife Resorts (NWR), Zelna Hengari's, N$7.5 million civil suit.

Hengari approached the High Court, suing N$7,5 million in reputation damages from her former employer.

The former NWR boss sued the parastatal over statements pertaining to a press statement the board issued on April 5, 2018, which was published in various local newspapers.

The Environment, Forestry, and Tourism Minister, Pohamba Shifeta, and the former Minister of Public Enterprise, Leon Jooste, were listed as respondents.

The former executive sought court intervention by asking it to order and direct that a public apology be issued by the two respondents and she be paid N$7.5 million in damages.

The Windhoek High Court did not provide a reason for the order, as the reason will be available at a later stage.
