A murder case was reported after a police officer (constable) was stabbed to death at about 00h30 in James Brown Street, Kuisebmond on Saturday (5 June 2021).

The Erongo police unit commander for community affairs, inspector Ileni Shapumba, confirmed the incident.

“The deceased was walking with his girlfriend to her place after visiting a friend when a group of about five male persons approached them with knives and searched them but did not take anything valuable from them. While the suspects walked away, the deceased and the girlfriend proceeded, he (deceased) was stabbed from behind on his left upper shoulder. When he turned around he was stabbed again on his chest/abdomen. The suspects fled.”

The deceased and his girlfriend tried to get to her home which was about 150-200 m away, but while doing so he collapsed. He was declared dead by E-Med paramedics at the scene and his body was transported to Walvis Bay state hospital for further handling.

Second murder

Another case of murder was opened after a man was beaten and died on the spot in Kuisebmond on Friday.

According to the Erongo police unit commander for community affairs, inspector Ileni Shapumba, the deceased Josef Martin Katzao (69) was seated at the table with friends in front of the Bafana Bafana Bar when an argument erupted between him and a security guard (57) at around 16:30.

“The security guard allegedly took a baton and beat the deceased on his head and struck him behind the left ear. The deceased collapsed. He was assisted by his friends who helped him up. However, the deceased passed away while seated and was declared dead at the scene by E-Med paramedics.”

The body was taken to Walvis Bay state Hospital for further handling before autopsy examinations. Police investigations continue.
