WINDHEOK, 09 FEB (NAMPA) - A 38-year-old woman was found dead near Farm Philadelphia in the Guinas area of the Oshikoto Region on Saturday.
The Namibian Police Force (NamPol) head of public relations, Deputy Commissioner Edwin Kangutjivi informed a media briefing here on Sunday that the deceased was on her way to the farm to visit her boyfriend, but never made it there.
She was identified as Rosalia Shuumbwa, a Namibian woman.
Shuumbwa was found half-naked and with a swollen face.
Her next of kin have been informed.
Police investigations into the case continue.
In an unrelated incident, a 41-year-old man died on the spot on 04 February 2015 after the car he was travelling in overturned at the Okashiya location between the Omugulugwombashe village and Tsandi settlement.
The deceased was identified as Simata Tweupongela Atuleni, a Namibian male.
It is alleged that the driver of the white Toyota pick-up vehicle lost control of the vehicle and it overturned.
In a separate incident, a G4S security guard was shot in the leg by suspected burglars at about 00h15 on 04 February 2015 near the Olive Grove Guesthouse along Promenaden Street in the capital.
Kanguatjivi said the suspects shot the security guard after he went to inspect movements on eastern side of the guesthouse.
The suspects ran away.
The owner of the premises, who requested to remain anonymous, told Nampa on Monday that that the suspects were in a nearby riverbed trying to get access into his neighbour’s premises.
“They (suspected burglars) never entered my property; our private security guard saw the suspects in the riverbed and alerted G4S,” he explained.
The wounded security guard, 22-year-old Joel Kawaya, a Namibian male, was discharged from a hospital and is recuperating at home.
The suspects are still at large, and police investigations in the matter continue.
