According to the Namibian Police Force Crime Investigations Coordinator for the Kavango East Region Deputy Commissioner Bonifatius Kanyetu on Sunday, the deceased is believed to be a needy person.
He said no identification documents were found on the deceased and the police are therefore requesting the public's assistance to identify him.
No foul play is suspected and his body was transported to the Rundu State Hospital mortuary for possible identification.
Police investigations continue.
Independent Patriot for Change candidate for the upcoming Swakopmund by-elections Louisa Kativa wants to advocate for the construction of a Health Centre, closer to the people, once elected as constituency councillor.
At the party’s second-year anniversary celebration and launch of the party’s 2024 Election Campaign in the coastal town on Saturday, Kativa, a nurse by profession, said the lack of a health centre is an issue, especially for those who live in the suburbs.
“There are currently only clinics closer to the people in need of services that are provided by the state hospital which is very far in town. Therefore, a health centre closer to the people is top of my priorities,” she stressed.
Additionally, the current mayor of Swakopmund said she will deal with the shortage of schools in the town, especially within the suburbs as most learners are now forced either to walk to town where most of the secondary schools are, while some are forced to seek for admission outside town due to a lack of schools.
Meanwhile, Kativa has bashed critics who are questioning what she has achieved as the town’s current mayor, noting that she has indeed facilitated the completion of several projects at the town.
“79 houses under the build-together project will soon be completed, while another 32 houses under the shack dwellers federation were handed over to beneficiaries under my leadership as mayor.
The water and electricity issue in DRC has also been done and dusted, under my leadership and what is left is for Erongo Red to come and sign the final documents before electricity is available here. Do not be deceived by those promising electricity during their campaigns, as I have already completed that process,” she said.
Meanwhile, the party’s president Dr Panduleni Itula has expressed concern about the country’s increasing social issues such as poverty, youth unemployment, and dilapidated hospitals and schools, among others.
“We know that the solution for all these issues lies in IPC. We first launched our campaign on 21 March, conscious that we need to give every Namibian an opportunity to be informed about the right to choose the political party that will bring you socio-economic solutions,” he said.
