Two American nationals aged 46, and 61, were yesterday arrested at a lodge near the Etosha National Park

Two American nationals aged 46, and 61, were yesterday arrested at a lodge near the Etosha National Park after they were allegedly found to have entered Namibia illegally.

Namibian Police Force (NamPol)'s Otjozondjupa Regional Police Commander, Commissioner Heinrich Tjiveze, in an interview with Nampa today said the two men's passports allegedly had no date stumps of Namibia's immigration officials showing where they entered the country from South Africa.

Their passports were found not [to] have been endorsed by any immigration official at a gazetted entry point of Namibia, said Tjiveze.

Tjiveze stated that even after they had entered the country, the two men, whose mission is still unknown to the police, allegedly also failed to present themselves to an immigration officer in Namibia.

Tjiveze said it is not known where and when the two Americans entered Namibia from South Africa, where their travels were supposed to end, as their passports only contain that country's immigration date stamp.
