Minister of Finance, Ipumbu Shiimi, has hit back at the director-general of the Anti-Corruption Commission, Paulus Noa, who said they need N$30 million in additional funding to execute key investigations, such as the Fishrot scandal. The Minister tweeted that “It is worrying that when ACC wants money they run to the media instead of talking to Ministry of Finance” adding that they “haven’t seen a written request from Mr. Noa for an additional N$30 million” and that “The budget ceiling of ACC was communicated in writing a few weeks ago”. Graham Hopwood, the Executive Director of the Institute of Public Policy Research agrees with the ACC director, however, says that Noa should have engaged the ministry instead of the media.
