WINDHOEK, 06 APR (NAMPA) The decomposed body of a 28-year-old man was found on Thursday in the bushes between the Wanaheda and Greenwell Matongo residential areas in Windhoek.
The remains were identified as those of Joseph Mevava Kamulu, who was reported missing more than a month ago.
The Namibian Police Force Deputy Commissioner Edwin Kanguatjivi told the media here on Sunday that the late Kamulu was reported missing on 27 February this year by his family.
A passer-by found the body hidden deep in the bush.
Further investigations found his clothes - a black jean trouser and a red T-shirt, black tekkies - and a black wallet containing his Namibian identification card, two bob (ATM) cards, voter registration card, drivers licence, as well as N.dollars 80 cash and a Nokia cell phone, said Kanguatjivi.
He said foul play is suspected, and a murder case has been opened.
In a separate incident, a 25-year-old woman is fighting for her life in the Katutura Intermediate Hospital after she was allegedly attacked with a panga on her head and arms during a quarrel with a male person.
The incident took place on Saturday along Zambia Street in the Havana informal settlement in the capital.
The victim has refused to lay charges against the suspect, Kanguatjivi noted.
He said the police will open a State case against the accused person, who is currently on the run.
