WINDHOEK, 02 AUG (NAMPA) - The Namibian Police Force (NamPol) is requesting families and relatives of victims who died in a horrific motor vehicle accident on 30 April to come and retrieve the remains of the deceased persons.
The accident took place on the Otjiwarongo-Okahandja main road at around 16h00.
Head of NamPol Public Relations Division, Deputy Commissioner, Edwin Kanguatjivi in a media statement issued Wednesday requested for the relatives to visit the Windhoek Police Mortuary.
“The disaster victim identification process is complete and the remains are ready for retrieval,” Kanguatjivi said.
He explained it was not necessary for family members whose DNA samples were taken to retrieve the remains, but any relative could visit the mortuary and claim the remains.
The remains being referred to are those of 10 people who burnt beyond recognition after an Iveco bus caught fire.
A Warrant Officer Shatipamba can be contacted and NamPol humbly apologies for any inconvenience that this necessary but long process may have caused.
The Force further extends its sympathy and condolences to the bereaved families, Kanguatjivi said.
