RUNDU, 24 JUN – Namibia Wildlife Resorts (NWR) will investigate one of its employees who is being accused of theft, the company said in a statement on Friday.
Manager of Corporate Communications, Mufaro Nesongano said NWR has taken note of a video and pictures that have been circulating on social media of one of its employees being accused of theft.
The video shows an employee of the State-owned company driving a brand-new and specialised tourist vehicle, sporting some visible branding of the NWR on a trip to Sossusvlei.
This employee is also seen being confronted about allegedly breaking into another tourist vehicle and attempting to steal items.
“NWR sincerely appreciates all the evidence that was submitted which will, in turn, enable NWR to investigate and take appropriate action,” Nesongano said.
Managing Director, Zelna Hengari is quoted in the statement as saying that as a company, NWR has integrity as one of its values.
“I would like to assure our stakeholders and guests that this incident does not at all reflect what we stand for. That is why we are acting on this matter with the urgency it deserves,” she said.
Julia Mutumbulua, NWR Chief Human Capital Officer is also quoted in the statement, saying the incident should serve as a reminder to all staff members that their actions have a direct reflection on the company.
“This impacts on how NWR as a company is observed. That is why we should at all times uphold our values,” she said.
