The Windhoek High Court on Friday ordered Abed Hishoono to pay First Lady Monica Geingos N$ 250 000 for defamatory remarks he made against her last year. Hishoono was also ordered to retract the defamatory remarks he made against Geingos and apologise by recording a video and distributing it to the same WhatsApp group where he distributed the first one. This, the Namibia press agency reports, after Geingos filed a N$ 350 000 defamation lawsuit against Hishoono for recording and sharing a video of himself in which he made false statements against the first lady, by claiming that Geingos corruptly influenced the planned liquidation of Air Namibia to protect and advance her own economic interests as she is a shareholder of Westair Aviation and was instrumental in its establishment. Hishoono also claimed that Geingos has a son with fishrot accused James Hatuikulipi who is currently in prison awaiting trial.
