Breadcrumb

The Rundu Magistrate's Court has not been renovated for over a decade and is now in disrepair. 

The court is currently out of storage and office space. 

The Parliamentary Standing Committee on Constitutional and Legal Affairs was informed about these concerns during a site visit.

Much of the Rundu Magistrate's Court in Kavango East is an assortment of peeling walls, various holes in the roof, and broken windows. 

Years have passed without any improvements to the building.

The security of judicial officers in Namibia is worrisome, as they are often attacked by family members of accused persons.

Members of the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Constitutional and Legal Affairs, who are gathered at Swakopmund for a stakeholder consultation, are now calling for improved protection of judicial officers.

The meeting is a follow-up to last year's workshop at Tsumeb, where challenges in the legal sector were identified.
