The Namibia Economic Freedom Fighters has accused the prosecutor general’s office of wielding political power and wasting resources after pursuing eight people, accused of inciting public violence, while “the State had no case”. Although the country recorded a slight decrease in road accident fatalities, compared to last year, for the 303 days from January to the end of October this year, 393 people died on Namibia’s roads.

Lutombi katente asi nampili ngomu ana gwana mbapira ezi simpe gahepa kuresa nokutara asi tatambura ndi tanyoka oyo vana kugazaranb kukamupa. Police chief Joseph Shikongo has revealed a staggering number of criminal cases reported last year, while issuing a stern warning to officers who are smuggling illegal items, including drugs, into police holding cells.

At Khorixas, a man was seriously injured and admitted to the hospital after being stabbed with a knife in the stomach. The incident occurred on Saturday around 20h50 at the Donkerhoek location.

After relative peace in recent months, the City of Windhoek council yesterday failed to elect its new office-bearers after councillors representing Swapo and the Independent Patriots for Change staged a walkout, much to the disappointment of residents and invited guests. Police chief Joseph Shikongo lauded Namibia Breweries Limited’s responsible drinking campaign, saying it will sensitise drivers on the importance of not driving under the influence of alcohol. The epic year-long quest of the City of Windhoek councillors and management to get Conrad Lutombi appointed as CEO was dealt a fatal blow when the Roads Authority triumphantly announced he is going nowhere. As the walkout staged by Swapo and Independent Patriots for Change last Thursday and the 11th hour rejection of its job offer by Conrad Lutombi resulted in a leadership vacuum, the protagonists in the saga have elected to stay silent. A South African national Michael Mpangala, charged with dealing in cocaine worth more than N$5 million, has been remanded in custody after appearing in the Katutura Magistrate’s Court yesterday.

A man, whose identity is unknown, allegedly shot and killed himself with a 7.65 millimetre pistol near the Ondangwa police station on Wednesday. Although the Khomas Regional Council made efforts to save the residents from drinking sewer water by paying for water tokens at the City Of Windhoek, the municipality said they will not issue the tokens to all the residents, as some do not qualify to get them. A girl whose abuse by her guardian went viral evoked anger from the public, but also compassion from one of the country’s most prominent legal personalities. A one-year-old baby has burned to death while the mother and two other siblings escaped with no injuries in a shack fire in the Havana informal settlement of Windhoek on Thursday night.
