Windhoek, 6 September 2016 – Namibia Wildlife Resorts (NWR) would like to hereby clarify that Mr. M. Nakwitima who is reported as being an employee of NWR in various news reports of him having been caught with Rhino horns is not an employee of the company.

Indeed, Mr. Nakwitima used to be employed as a Company Investigator at NWR but resigned about three years ago following the institution of disciplinary charges against him.

As a company, we have continuously supported the efforts of the Ministry of Environment and Tourism aimed at combating wildlife poaching. If and when an employee of NWR is arrested for such or any other illegal acts, we shall support all efforts by law enforcement agencies to bring them to book.

NWR’s Vision is to be “a recognized leader in tourism and hospitality services in Namibia”. For more information, please consult our website www.nwr.com.na or liaise with us directly using the details below.
