Walvis Bay • Crime Report

Brendon Samuel Losper (between 32- and 35-years-old) was allegedly stabbed to death by a 20-year-old man in Walvis Bay.

Deputy commissioner Erastus Iikuyu confirmed the incident, saying that it is not known what the reason for the suspect’s action was.

“The stabbing with a sharp object caused a deep open wound on the left upper chest of the victim. The incident occurred at Theo-Ben Gurirab Street, next to house no. 142 which is an abandoned house, where the victim and other homeless people stay,” he said.

It would seem the victim ran into the house and collapsed after he was stabbed.

“E-med was called to the scene and they transported him to Walvis Bay state hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival,” said Iikuyu.

The suspect handed himself over to the investigation team. He was placed under arrested and will appear at the Walvis Bay magistrate’s court on Wednesday.


Alfeus Heingo (57) died after the front loader in which he was seated tumbled down a steep hill at Fame Stone Distributors mine site, which is located at farm Okatji Mukuyu in the Karibib district.

The incident occurred at about 11:30 today (Monday).

“Two males (the driver and a passenger) were allegedly in a front loader on top of a mountainous terrain where marble blocks are being mined and processed. The driver lost control, causing the machine to roll down the hill,” explained Iikuyu.

When this happened, the occupants were flung out of the cabin.
“The passenger sustained serious injuries and died on the spot, while the driver sustained minor injuries. His next of kin were informed. The driver (58) received medical treatment at a private health institution in Omaruru and is reported to have been discharged already.”

Missing person

Public assistance is requested to locate Daniël Sisoyo (34), who was last seen at farm Kanjemundje in the Okombahe district.

“Sisoyo was brought to the farm on Friday, 8 January 2021 by Gerson Namaseb. The following Saturday, he started acting strangely and displayed unusual behaviour. When he woke up he started grabbing and pulling bags around and talked in a language which others could not understand. They suspected it to be Oshiwambo,” said Iikuyu.

According to Iikuyu, Sisoyo then started walking towards the riverbed.
The incident was reported to the police and they followed the tracks until it entered a commercial farm owned by a local farmer.

The farm owner was requested to assist in tracing the missing man.

“He provided his private helicopter and searched his three farms of 17 000 hectares for two hours but could not find any sign of the missing person. The search on the ground continues,” said Iikuyu.

Sisoyo was wearing a red jersey, brown trousers and sandals on the day he went missing.

Anyone with information regarding his whereabouts, can contact Detective Chief Inspector Gurirab at 0813182181, Detective Warrant Officer Gawanab at 0812143299 or the nearest police station.

The police could not provide a photo of the missing person.
