February 6, 2018, 8:13pm

Information communication technology minister Tjekero Tweya has lashed out at the Institute for Public Policy Research (IPPR) for publishing what he has called a “malicious” and “misleading” report on Namibia’s access to information situation.   

The report titled Access Denied is aimed at determining to what extent various ministries, SOEs and regions would respond with specific information requested by the researchers.

The report findings are that 80 percent of all organisations could not provide the public information requested.

It further reveals that 85 percent of the public enterprises were unresponsive while only one region, Erongo managed to provide the requested information.
