Anatomy of a Bribe | Al Jazeera Investigations

8 123
Al Jazeera’s Investigative Unit secretly films officials in Namibia demanding cash in exchange for political favours. It’s a story of how foreign companies plunder Africa’s natural resources. Using confidential documents provided to Al Jazeera by Wikileaks, . “Anatomy of a Bribe” exposes the government ministers and public officials willing to sell off Namibia’s assets in return for millions of dollars in bribes. Al Jazeera journalists spent three months undercover posing as foreign investors looking to exploit the lucrative Namibian fishing Industry. The country’s Minister of Fisheries is shown willing to use a front company to accept a $200,000 ‘donation’. Exclusive testimony from a whistleblower who worked for Iceland’s largest fishing company reveals that his employers instructed him to bribe ministers and even the president in return for fishing rights worth hundreds of millions of dollars.

Accordingly to the Bible, Jacob was White and Esau was Black. God made everything Black to be corrupt, mischievous, devious, self-destructive, foolish, retarded, blind and hopeless from cape Town to Cairo.

I have visit Namibia a couple of times over the last two decades and more and more white citizens had to share political power with colored. Now I think they are completely pushed out. Was it as corrupt back when white people ran the show in Namibia and gave away their country’s wealth??
It was super nice visiting back in early 2000. I don’t now how it’s now though.

Absolute power corrupts. We have the same problems here in South Africa as in the whole of Africa.
My question as I watch this, have these corrupt fellows been charged ?or are they still walking freely and manipulating evidence in an attempt to hide the truth. wake up Africa.wake up Namibia.

$200,000 bribe will not even make the news in Nigeria. I can see Namibia is still learning. In Nigeria bribery at the minister level will be in the millions of dollar.

“I am for sure at risk of going to jail. If that is the cost I have to pay to expose this, I have long time ago come to terms with that”. Bring them all down with you Johannes.

I don't know whether to be happy or sad that Africans are failing even in corruption but this is the best investigative journalism ever! Good work Al Jazeera.

As horrible as this is, this is child's play... The tourism minister in Zimbabwe just helped herself to ninety-five million US dollars, it wasn't even a bribe, she just looted it and was then given bail... Meanwhile millions starve.

Namibia has had the benefit of studying what neighbouring countries did after independence. Especially the elite who can drive the country's direction. So disappointing
