… But says he knows nothing of ‘spying’ allegations
By Marianne Nghidengwa
Police officer Engelbrecht Awala Haipa, who had acted as a driver and bodyguard for Urban and Rural Development Minister, Sophia Shaningwa, has been recalled from his post, amid allegations that he shared sensitive information about her whereabouts to a faction within Swapo.
Haipa confirmed on Wednesday that he was no longer with Shaningwa, but said that no formal reasons were given to him about why he had been shifted.
“I am not told anything about why I no longer drive for the minister. I was only told by my office to stop, although without reason. I don’t know anything, so I cannot comment further,” he said.
Sources privy to the matter told Confidente that the driver has been dismissed after investigations revealed that he had been reporting the whereabouts, and other delicate information about the minister.
