The first body of a man suspected to be between 30 and 40 years of age was recovered from the dam on Friday at about 19h00.
The man allegedly drowned in the dam while swimming last week.
His identity will be made public at a later stage.
The second corpse was retrieved on Sunday at about 14h00.
It is reported that the victim, aged 30, drowned on Saturday.

In the Dolam township, a house situated on Erf 1407 caught fire on Sunday morning at about 10h00, and excessive damage was done to it.

The Windhoek Police reported that an unspecified number of people sustained minor bodily injuries when four vehicles - one belonging to the Namibian Broadcasting Corporation (NBC) - were involved in an accident at the corner of Hosea Kutako Road and Independence Avenue on Friday afternoon at about 14h00.
The accident occurred after the driver of a mini-truck allegedly disobeyed instructions from a City Police traffic officer who was manning the road at the intersection at the time.
All injured people were immediately rushed to the Katutura State Hospital for medical treatment, and were all discharged from the hospital on the same day.
