Body with stab wound found in Otjiwarongo

A man in his late 20s was found dead with a deep open wound in his chest in the Telecom informal settlement at Otjiwarongo in the early hours of Sunday morning.

The Otjozondjupa Region's Namibian Police Force Inspector, Maureen Mbeha in an interview with Nampa on Monday said the deceased who is yet to be identified, was found dead by a passerby at about 05h30 on Sunday morning in a street of the Telecom informal settlement.

It was this passerby who altered us upon finding the body, and since then we are hard at work looking for the perpetrator, Mbeha said.

The police officer is now calling on members of the general public missing a relative to visit the Otjiwarongo Police Station and assist in the identification of this deceased man.

Police investigations in the matter continue.
