Zambezi Police conduct awareness on explosive devices


Police in the Zambezi Region held a community outreach programme to educate and sensitise the public on the dangers of explosive ordinances.

The intervention follows the recent explosion of a hand grenade, which resulted in the deaths of three children in Mpancha when they brought it home.

The outreach programme at Kongola featured dramas and a showcase of different explosive devices found.

Zambezi Police Commander Andreas Shilelo cautioned the public to be aware of their surroundings, urging elders to educate young children about the dangers of explosives.

NCS launches community outreach programme


The Namibia Correctional Services held a community outreach event at Rehoboth on Saturday.

The event was meant to sensitise the community about escalating drug use and crime in Rehoboth and the importance of community outreach programmes in rehabilitating offenders.

The community outreach programme was aimed at facilitating and instilling behavioural change in offenders from the Hardap Region.

Inmates are thus empowered while paying their debts to society.
