The High Court has ordered a company owned by fraud-accused businessman Ernest Adjovi and his Namibian representative Tonata Shiimi to pay back N$23 million to a Namibian tourism state agency for failing to deliver a music awards show. Adjovi, a close friend of President Hage Geingob, is accused of swindling the Namibian government out of around N$23,5 million by promising to host a music award in 2016 that never took place. “Defendants shall repay the amount of N$23 million to the plaintiff [Namibia Tourism Board],” High Court judge Herman Oosthuizen ruled on Thursday. Adjovi, his company Mundial Telecom SARL, and Shiimi are listed as defendants in the case. Oosthuizen also ordered them to pay an annual 20% interest on the N$23 million as of 1 July 2016.
