The Ministry of Justice has stated that social media posts and video clips claiming that embattled lawyer Eva Nangolo has been dismissed from her post are inaccurate.
Nangolo's legal aid certificate was revoked by Justice Minister Yvonne Dausab after she made tribal slurs about Damara-speaking Namibians on her Twitter page a week ago, which received widespread condemnation.
According to a statement issued by the Ministry of Justice spokesperson, Simon Idipo, only Nangolo's certificate to practice in court has been withdrawn pending investigations into her conduct.
This means that Nangolo will continue to receive her salary and be employed by the Ministry pending the outcome of the investigation.
The statement further pointed out that Nangolo may still be assigned other tasks and will be required to report for duty.
The Ministry of Justice pleads with those who are spreading these inaccurate details to desist from doing so and allow them to finalize the internal process as envisaged.
