Justice Ministry clarifies Eva Nangolo's employment status

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Nangolo's legal aid certificate was revoked by Justice Minister Yvonne Dausab after she made tribal slurs about Damara-speaking Namibians on her Twitter page a week ago, which received widespread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issued by the Ministry of Justice spokesperson, Simon Idipo, only Nangolo's certificate to practice in court has been withdrawn pending investigations into her conduct.
