ONGWEDIVA, 16 JUN (NAMPA) – Twenty heads of cattle stolen in the Omusati Region last month were traced to Calueque in southern Angola.
Warrant Officer Linekela Shikongo of the Namibian Police Force’s Public Relations Unit in the region told Nampa two Angolans have been arrested and are being held in Angola in connection with the theft of the cattle.
The cattle were returned to the owner, Johannes Nguti, this week.
Nguti opened a stock theft case with the Namibian Police on 05 June after 25 of his cattle, valued at N.dollars 199 500, were stolen.
The livestock was stolen from a field at Otjomurunga in the Onesi Constituency, where Nguti lives.
Shikongo said a tip-off from reliable sources led to the tracing of the cattle.
“Five of the animals are yet to be traced,” he said.
