Omaheke CRO suspended with immediate effect

The Chief Regional Officer (CRO) of the Omaheke Regional Council, has been suspended with immediate effect pending an investigation into allegations of corruption, maladministration, and other irregularities.
Maria Vaendwanawa was suspended today at a special council meeting to pave way for an investigation which will start in January 2020.
The suspension was confirmed by Otjombinde Constituency Councillor, Katjana Kaurivi, who chaired the meeting today.
Kaurivi informed NBC News that Vaendwanawa has since left the office and surrendered all keys and property belonging to the council.
She will, however, receive all her benefits such as salaries until the matter is finalized.
