12 July 2019 | Crime
Sakeus Shikongo, who appeared before the Swakopmund Magistrate's Court on Wednesday, was released on bail of N$3 500.
A statement issued by ACC public relations officer Josefina Nghituwamata said Shikongo allegedly asked the bribe in exchange for persuading Spur workers to accept a 3% increase instead of the 9% and 12% increases they had demanded.
“Following the reports to the commission, a sting operation was organised and Shikongo was arrested after he received a bribe of N$2 500. It is alleged the outstanding N$2 500 was to be paid after persuading the employees,” the statement read.
The case was postponed to 19 August for further investigation.
“Bail of N$3 500 was granted on condition that he report to the Walvis Bay police station twice a week and that his passport be handed to the investigating officer,” the ACC statement said.
