IN what is purported to be a misogynistic attack, Independent Patriots of Change Spokesperson Immanuel Nashinge is today making rounds on social media after he was sued when he insulted and shamed socialite Beata Siteketa “Betty Davids” in a wildly circulated social media post.
Nashinge, on top of getting sued, was also slapped with a criminal charge and has since admitted guilt at the Otjomuise police station in Windhoek where he was also fined. He handed himself over to the police. When Informanté caught up with Nashinge at the police station, he declined to comment, saying he does not know what happened.
Nashinge, according to court documentation is employed as a graphic designer at the Ministry of Information and Communication Technology.
His legal troubles with Davids began earlier this week when he reacted on a Whatsapp group named “Global Afrika Unity” to a flyer about an interview Davids was going to host.
Davids was going to participate in the interview with the Head of Namibia’s Investment Promotion Agency, Accountant Nangula Uaandja in a public virtual interview.
This was Nashinge’s response to the notice:
“U see this type of shit I speak about? Who is Betty? Some kid known for sleeping around with older man like Paul Shipoke is the type of people our government promotes….. next is Kaxuxwena. Normal people don’t matter in this country. This is an indication that, the useless investment nonsense in the Presidency will be a serious flop. That Nangula woman will regret leaving PWC. We can’t be using state institutions to promote prostitutes. Pls”(sic).
Nashinge’s rant follows barely a week after another prominent IPC Leader Abed Hishoono apologized to first Lady Monica Geingos for accusing her of owning shares in West Air and implying that she is part of a cohort aimed at pushing for the liquidation of Air Namibia at the benefit of West Air.
Hishoono also dragged the first lady by accusing her of having a child with one of the Fishrot accused, and that her child is a Fishrot beneficiary. Hishoono apologized after he was served.
Davids, who holds a Bachelor of Accounting Honours Degree, an Honours Degree in Logistics and Procurement, an LLM in Commercial Law, a Postgraduate Diploma in Business Management as well as an MBA Degree, contends through her Lawyer Sisa Namandje that she is a knowledgeable and highly qualified person.
She is suing Nashinge to the tune of N$400 000 in damages to her good name, reputation, and dignity.
