WINDHOEK, Feb 24– The Namibian police have destroyed about 800 kilogrammes of cannabis valued at about 2.4 million Namibian dollars (about 221,000 US dollars) as well as Mandrax tablets and crack cocaine with a street value of about 25,000 (NAD).

The drugs, which were burned at an incinerator on a farm east of Windhoek last Friday, were mainly seized in Windhoek and Rehoboth, about 90 kilometres south of here.

The Namibia Police (NamPol) Criminal Investigation Directorate (CID) regularly destroys drugs after the related drug possession or dealing in drugs cases are finalised.

Commissioner Nicholas Endjala from the CID told journalists NamPol means business when it declared war on drugs.

““Drugs and the availability of drugs is really a problem in our society, and therefore we need the support of the Namibian public to get drugs off the streets,”” he added.
