Missing Elder Found Dead

AN ELDERY man who went missing more than two weeks ago was found dead in the mountainous area of Goreagab Dam in Windhoek last week.

Karel Sweni (80) was reported missing from Erf 1432 Orusu Street in Freedomland, Katutura on 18 March 2014 around 11h00.

The Wanaheda Police then requested for public assistance in tracing his whereabouts.

Police spokesperson Deputy Commissioner Edwin Kanguatjivi confirmed Sweni’s death, saying the elderly man was found in the mountainous area of Goreagab Dam.

He said the cause of death is not known and police investigations continue.

The deceased’s daughter, Karabo Sweni also confirmed her father’s death, saying they were informed when the body was found.

“We went and identified him,” she said.

Karabo Sweni could, however, not provide further details last week, saying she was digesting the news.
