RUNDU, 13 MAY (NAMPA) – The police in the Kavango West Region last week Thursday confiscated cannabis valued at N.dollars 29 000 at Ruhunga village in the region.
According to a Namibian Police crime report issued on Monday, it is alleged that the cannabis weighing 2 990 kilogrammes was being transported from Angola to Namibia in a canoe.
A 36-year-old Namibian male was arrested with the drugs whilst his Angolan counterpart ran away from the police and is still at large.
Efforts to track him down are underway and police investigations into the matter continue, noted the report.
In another incident, a 49-year-old man was arrested last week Thursday after allegedly stabbing another male once in the chest with an Okapi knife at a shebeen in Zigizi village in the same region.
It is alleged that the incident happened around 14h00, when the man was stabbed by the suspect after he attempted to separate his elder brother from being attacked by the suspect, says the report.
It said the injured man was transported to Tsumeb State Hospital in the Oshikoto Region where he is receiving treatment, while the suspect is detained at the Kahenge police station and was expected to appear in the Rundu Magistrate’s Court on Monday.
A case of assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm was opened while police investigations continue.
