Man allegedly shot twice at Okahandja

A 29-year-old man was allegedly shot twice in the back by unknown attackers at Okahandja on Saturday night while walking back home.

Namibia Police Force (NamPol) head of community affairs in the Otjozondjupa Region, Inspector Maureen Mbeha in an interview with Nampa on Sunday said the alleged incident happened at approximately 21h00, while the victim was walking back home alone, from a Herero commemoration feast which took place at the Commando no.1, at the town.

The victim, she said was discovered by a passer-by on a footpath that runs in the bushes, where he fell down.

‘The victim is now in a stable but critical condition at the Okahandja State Hospital where he was taken by the police the same night,” Mbeha noted.

Police investigations into the matter continue.
