Inspector-general of the Namibian police force Sebastian Ndeitunga announced that the Namibian police force has launched its festive season operations that run until 15 January. In the meantime, it seems that the numerous road safety campaigns are working, with 344 fewer accidents that took place from 1 January to 2 December this year in comparison to the same period last year. While losing 492 lives is still a high price to pay, it is 201 less than in 2017. WE reports.
