OMUTHIYA - A two-year-old boy from Okakodhi village, Omuthiya district, tragically drowned on Monday when he fell in a neighbour’s well while playing with his sister. 

According to Oshikoto police regional crime investigation coordinator, Naomi Katjiua, it is alleged that the deceased Junior Gideon and his nine-year-old sister were playing in the mahangu field while their grandmother was inside the house. Later on, they moved to the neighbour’s field where they continued to play and run around the well when he fell in. 

On same day, the police opened another inquest case after a 41-year-old man was found dead in his sleeping room at Omatope village, Bravo settlement.
