Kid killed by NamPol will be laid to rest Saturday

WINDHOEK: The struggle kid killed by members of the Namibian Police Force (NamPol) last week, will be laid to rest on Saturday at her home village east of Okongo in the Ohangwena Region.

Frieda Ndatipo, 26, a mother of three children, died on the spot after a scuffle broke out between NamPol and a group of Children of the Liberation Struggle.

The youths threw stones and the police retaliated with gunshots, one fatally hitting Ndatipo.

Kaptein Erastus, the spokesperson of the group, told Nampa today that he does not have details about where exactly the funeral will take place.

He said they will not be attending the funeral, as they do not have the means to travel up North.

Erastus said their parents who died in exile, did not surrender – they managed to liberate this country – and the same now apply to them – they will continue to fight until everyone is out of this camp after being employed by Government.

Erastus demanded that Ndatipo’s three children should now be taken care of by the government.

A memorial service for Ndatipo was set to take place in Windhoek this afternoon.
