Namibian Police Force today arrested a Zambian national at the Okapuka

The Namibian Police Force (NamPol) today arrested a Zambian national at the Okapuka roadblock along the B1 national road, for allegedly working and operating a business in Namibia while on a visiting permit.

Addressing the media at the site, NamPol Chief Inspector Christina van Fonsech said suspicion aroused when the man had too many bags during the police vehicle search at the roadblock.

The bags were found to contain herbs, animal fat, a machete, a Bible and what he called “anointing water and oil”.

The man, van Fonsech said, claimed to be a pastor and a traditional healer.

She stressed that for a foreign traditional healer to operate in the country, he/she must be registered with a recognised traditional authority.

The suspect was travelling from Zambia to Windhoek at the time of his arrest.
