The Namibian Police Force’s Kunene Regional Commander, Commissioner James Nderura, said the police will release a comprehensive report on the arrest after an in-depth investigation is completed.

‘He was arrested but that is all for now, we can only provide the full report after the interrogation and once we forward the documents of the investigation to the head of police,’ he stated.

Nderura told Nampa Rebebe was arrested at his girlfriend’s flat in Opuwo following an intelligence-led operation by the police.

Eight more individuals allegedly involved in the matter were apprehended in Rundu after the alleged theft.
