OSHAKATI, 21 MAY (NAMPA) – Three NamPost employees who allegedly stole N.dollars 27 000 from a pensioner’s savings account in the Oshikoto Region, have been arrested.
The Namibian Police Force’s (NamPol) regional Deputy Crime Investigations Coordinator, Chief Inspector Edna Nawa said in a crime report the three women withdrew the money from the 67-year-old Hileni Mwalwa’s NamPost account in February and March this year.
They are being investigated for fraud and theft.
Mwalwa noticed that N.dollars 9 000 was missing from her account and asked NamPost to investigate.
While these investigations were in progress, an additional N.dollars 18 000 was withdrawn from the same account, Nawa said.
It was later discovered that two employees from the Onankali branch had been stealing from Mwalwa’s account. They were arrested on Thursday.
The third suspect from a different branch in the region who reportedly worked with the other two suspects, was arrested on Friday.
They are expected to appear in the Ondangwa Magistrate’s Court on Monday.
Police investigations continue.
