KAHENGE - A 36-year-old man was arrested allegedly for possession of dagga after police reportedly found him with 2 990 kg of cannabis worth an unspecified amount which he tried to smuggle from neighbouring Angola into Namibia in a dug-out canoe.
An Angolan accompanying the Namibian suspect managed to flee from the police.
According to a police report, the arrest was made last Thursday afternoon at about 15h50 at Ruhuga village Kavango West Region, during a police search that discovered the dagga.
A 36-year-old Namibian male was due to appear in court today and the Angolan suspect is still at large as he could have possibly swam back across the river into Angola.
