Second half substitute Itamunua Keimuine put the ball into the Warriors' own net to give the Atlas Lions a narrow victory.
Prior to that, Morocco dominated the proceedings in the first half but the Brave Warriors' stubborn defense did not give them an opening.
Warriors Goalkeeper Loydt Kazapua and his two central defenders Ryan Nyambe who only played his second game for his country and Denzil Hoeseb were outstanding in keeping Atlas Lions at bay.
Morocco with their Ajax Amsterdam Star Player Hakim Ziyech were a constant threat but could not find a break through.
After a goalless first half the North Africans upped their game in the second half but there was no way past Kazapua
The performance of Kazapua who was for long in the shadows of Virgil Vries and Maximilian Mbaeva as number one keepers for Namibia was clear for everyone to see.
And just when every Namibian supporter was at peace with getting a point against Morocco, the Warriors' Ethiopian based midfielder Itamunua Keimuine put the ball past Kazapua in the Warriors net.
Keimuine who committed the foul that lead to his own goal was devastated at the final whistle as the Brave Warriors lost their sixth game against Morocco in seven games played.
Namibia who are yet to win an African Cup of Nations match will face South Africa's Bafana Bafana in their second game of the competition on Friday.
That is after South Africa and Ivory Coast play each other as the other two teams in group D.
