WALVIS BAY, 28 JAN (NAMPA) – Thirteen cattle worth N.dollars 130 000 were stolen from Farm Mon-Repos in the Karibib district between last Monday and Tuesday according to the Namibian Police Force (NamPol).

Iikuyu said one of the suspects, an 18-year-old man, was arrested the same day, while the second suspect, who is known, is yet to be arrested.
The deceased’s next of kin have been informed.
