WINDHOEK – Residents in the NAMIBIAN capital, WINDHOEK, have received a serious warning from the municipal authorities to look out for criminals during the coming holidays.
A Spokesperson of the City of WINDHOEK Police says members of the public need to be vigilant against house breaking, robberies, and other social evils during EASTER.
Superintendent ELIASER IYAMBO says residents should always alert their neighbours or the law-enforcement agents before departing for the long weekend.
His warning comes after the arrest of FOUR people suspected of stealing goods from a residence along WASHINGTON Street in the OTJOMUISE suburbs.
Superintendent IYAMBO says the stolen items, worth between 15-THOUSAND and 17-THOUSAND NAMIBIA dollars; include a television set, a laptop, amplifiers, shoes, and DVD players.
He says WINDHOEK City Police seized the suspects after flagging down a suspicious sedan vehicle between KHOMASDAL and OTJOMUISE.
They have since identified TWO of the accused persons, and all FOUR will appear before the KATUTURA Magistrate’s Court tomorrow (WEDNESDAY).
In another development, OTJOZONDJUPA Regional Police Spokesperson Warrant Officer MAUREEN MBEHA has announced TWO recent murder cases in OKAHANDJA City.
She says FRANS URI-KHOB, whose age is unknown to police, was stabbed with a spear on the left shoulder after a fight with TWO men at OSHETU settlements of NAU-AIB residential area.
Warrant Officer MBEHA says the victim died upon arrival at the local hospital where he had been ferried soon after the attack, while the TWO arrested suspects face murder charges.
Meanwhile, she says a 28-year-old man has been killed during a fight in the same town.
MARCO MURANGI succumbed to the injuries he sustained in the left side of the chest, but the police have arrested a 25-year-old suspect and charged him with the murder.
The NAMIBIAN Police official says all the accused in the TWO separate cases have been due to appear in court this MONDAY, while the next of kin of both victims are all informed./Sabanews/cam
