The body of a 51-year-old man was found hanging from a tree at Kanyanga village in the Mukwe constituency of the Kavango East Region on Monday.

The Namibian Police Force Crime Investigations Coordinator for the Kavango East Region, Bonifatius Kanyetu, told Nampa on Wednesday that the deceased was identified as Pius Mangundu.

It is alleged that Mangundu, who was the acting principal of Biro Combined School, left his homestead on 21 November in search of missing goats and never returned. His body was found hanging from a tree a few meters from his homestead.

No suicide note was found on the scene and his body was transported to the Andara Hospital for a postmortem to be carried out.

His next of kin have been informed.

In an unrelated incident, the body of a 17-year-old girl was discovered lying on the gravel road at Vhungu Vhungu village on Tuesday.

Kanyetu said the information around her death is sketchy but unconfirmed details suggest that she allegedly fell from a moving Toyota bakkie.

A case of culpable homicide has been opened and police investigations continue.
