Al Jazeera’s Investigative Unit secretly films officials in Namibia demanding cash in exchange for political favours. It’s a story of how foreign companies plunder Africa’s natural resources. Using confidential documents provided to Al Jazeera by Wikileaks, . “Anatomy of a Bribe” exposes the government ministers and public officials willing to sell off Namibia’s assets in return for millions of dollars in bribes. Al Jazeera journalists spent three months undercover posing as foreign investors looking to exploit the lucrative Namibian fishing Industry. The country’s Minister of Fisheries is shown willing to use a front company to accept a $200,000 ‘donation’. Exclusive testimony from a whistleblower who worked for Iceland’s largest fishing company reveals that his employers instructed him to bribe ministers and even the president in return for fishing rights worth hundreds of millions of dollars.

    As horrible as this is, this is child's play... The tourism minister in Zimbabwe just helped herself to ninety-five million US dollars, it wasn't even a bribe, she just looted it and was then given bail... Meanwhile millions starve.

    Namibia has had the benefit of studying what neighbouring countries did after independence. Especially the elite who can drive the country's direction. So disappointing

    I'm not here to condemn Namibia but this is what's happening to our continent. Sad truth. This is just how much slefishness from people of high profile in governments is costing us. So shameful and disgusting. Kudos to Aljazeera and also Johannes for your courage to expose this dirty business. There's more than enough resources in Africa.

    My understanding of the world, it is next to nothing compared to these journalists understanding, they got so much going on, they have seen the world up close, and from a far, you saw the fish swimming, you caught the fish, and it was carefully planned, you managed to get deep, you wheeled them in so carefully performed, you guys had to be real life actors, you sold a story, and they had to believe you were real characters, the fish bites the bait. And what a nice performance, next level stuff, only learned men has the skills to do what you did. Well done.

    This isn’t mentioned in the documentary, but the Icelandic and Namibian governments actually worked together to develop the Namibian fishing sector. When it came to a close, private companies from Iceland (like Samherji) picked up the torch, but instead of cooperation they pillaged the resources and gave nothing in return. It’s very pathetic that our countries’ relationship has been exploited in the name of greed, and the people of Iceland are not happy.
