The Kavango East Region Governor, Bonifasius Wakudumo, has rescinded his decision to appoint Chinese businessman Charlie Min Xie as an advisor on regional developmental issues. Nampa reports that Wakudumo in a statement released Monday night said he decided to withdraw his decision of appointing Xie on an advisory committee to advise the Kavango East governor. The reversal of the appointment follows a public outcry against his initial decision made on 19 December 2020 of making Xie an exclusive commercial and development advisor and chairperson of the Kavango East Chamber for Development.
