Erongo Governor emphasizes region's economic significance and strategic location


Erongo Governor Neville Andre says the region is strategically located and remains an active hub of economic development as it houses key industries such as the fishing sector, mining, logistics, and transport, as well as tourism.

Andre said this during a courtesy visit by the Brazilian business delegation to his office.

Andre says if trade agreements between the two countries are successful, it will help address the country's high rate of youth unemployment and an unskilled workforce. 

Operation Basadi launched


Between January and November 2023, 183 crimes were committed against women and children in the Kavango West Region. 

The region has now joined the rest of the country in carrying out "Operation Basadi," targeting wanted persons for violence against women, children, and the elderly.

Members of the Namibian Police Force in Kavango West took to the streets of Nkurenkuru, signifying the start of "Operation Basadi," which will run until December 6.

Africa losses about N$750 billion annually through illicit financial flows


The Erongo Governor says that the African continent is estimated to be losing about N$750 billion annually—money that could have been used for development through illicit financial flows and other forms of organised crime.

Neville Andre said this during the annual workshop of the heads of anti-corruption agencies in the SADC region.
Andre says that corruption is a global problem that is not unique to a single continent or region.
