Decomposed body found near Wanaheda

WINDHOEK: A decomposed body was found on Thursday in the bushes between Wanaheda and Greenwell Matongo residential areas in Windhoek.

The badly decomposed body was identified as that of Joseph Mevava Kamulu who went missing more than a month ago.

Namibian Police Deputy Commissioner Edwin Kangwatjivi told the media on Sunday that late Kamulu was reported missing on 27 February this year by a family after he went to visit his friend at Green Well Matongo and never seen again.

He said a passer-by found the body which was deep hidden in the bushes which surrounded by grasses.

“By further investigation the investigators found his pieces of clothes, a black jean trouser, as well as a red T-shirt, black tekkies and on the pockets of the trouser we found a black wallet containing Namibian identification document, two bob cards, voter registration, driver license as well as cash of N.dollars 80 and Nokia cell phone,” said Kanguatjivi.

He said there is a strong possibility that a foul play is suspected and a murder case has been opened while Police investigation is continuing.

Meanwhile, a 25 year old is fighting for her life in Katutura State Hospital after he was allegedly attacked with panga on her head and arms after a quarrel with a male person.

The incident took place on Saturday at Zambia street in Havana informal settlement.

The victim, however has refused to lay charges against the suspect, Kanguatjivi noted.

He said the Police will open a state case against the accused who is currently on the run.
