RUNDU, 16 SEP (NAMPA) A human skull was discovered at the Ngwangwa village in the Kavango East Region on Tuesday.
Villagers found dogs feeding on the skull. They suspect it could be the remains of a man who disappeared from the same village two months ago.
The Namibian Police Force (NamPol) searched for the rest of the human remains and footprints, but only found the skull, said acting Regional Crime Investigations Coordinator for Kavango East, Detective Chief Inspector Chrispin Mubebo.
At this moment it is very difficult for us to identify the person, as the skull is in a decomposed state, he told Nampa on Wednesday.
NamPol will conduct deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) sampling on the skull.
The (missing person) incident was reported to the police station but we really do not know whether this is the right person. Only the DNA sampling can tell whether this is the skull of the missing person, he noted.
In a separate incident, a Namibian Defence Force (NDF) official at the Grootfontein Military Base, John Shaanika was arrested last Friday for drunken driving.
He was arrested at the Masivi roadblock along the Rundu-Grootfontein road.
Shaanika on Tuesday made his first appearance before Rundu Magistrate, Ileni Velikoshi on charges of reckless and/or negligent driving under the influence.
His case was postponed to 19 November 2015 for laboratory results to be obtained and for the police to complete investigations into the matter.
Shaanika was granted bail of N.dollars 2 000.
