Fake degrees, vanity prizes, and dodgy indices continue to be lauded and flaunted by politicians and government officials the world over, and Namibia is no exception.

In mid-July 2022 it emerged that President Hage Geingob had been ranked the third best president in Africa by an online magazine based in the US called African Vibes in a 27 March 2022 article. The website does not come across as a serious journalistic or news website, but rather as a click-bait website, with headlines such as “10 Best African Countries To Invest in and why.”
