RUNDU, 31 MAR (NAMPA) – A 24-year-old man was arrested here on Saturday after allegedly driving a vehicle without a valid driver’s license and running over an 11-year-old boy, who later died in hospital.
This is according to a report issued by Detective Chief Inspector Ewald Kavara of the Namibian Police Force (NamPol) in the Kavango East Region on Sunday.

It is alleged that the driver of a white Nissan double cab was driving at a high speed and bumped the pedestrian, who was crossing the street.
The pedestrian, identified as Frans Kasweka, died later in the Rundu State Hospital, where he was taken after the accident.
His next of kin have been informed of his death and investigations into the matter continue.
The suspect is expected to appear in the Rundu Magistrate’s Court on Monday.
