Business Corruption in Namibia

Namibia flag, corruptionCorruption is a problem in certain sectors in Namibia. The country's public procurement sector is particularly susceptible to corruption due to the monopoly of state-owned companies (parastatals). The Anti-Corruption Act is Namibia's primary anti-corruption law, covering passive briberyactive bribery, attempted corruption, extortion and bribing a foreign public official. A range of legislation covers other corruption offences; however, despite a strong framework for curbing corruption, enforcement of the legislation is inconsistent. Gifts and facilitation payments given or received as an inducement for an act are illegal under the Anti-Corruption Act, and there are few reports of gifts being expected. However, facilitation payments are common, particularly in the customs sector.
