The body of 52-year-old Engelbert Mudumbi Zakaria was found at Sikondo Village, 15 kilometres west of Rundu.

The body was found along the Kavango River on Sunday, and an autopsy is still pending to determine the cause of death.

A similar discovery was made on the same day at Uvhungu Vhungu Village.

The body of a male was found floating in the river by community members, who alerted the police.

Community members helped to retrieve the body.

The acting Regional Commander, Deputy Commissioner Bonifatius Kanyetu, says the body was already in a decomposed state.

Meanwhile, on Tuesday at Kehemu, a wall collapsed on two women, killing one of them.

It is alleged that a truck carrying steel lip channels accidentally drove through the gate of a yard where the two were seated, breaking off a wall structure that fell on the two victims.

Both women were rushed to the Rundu State Hospital; unfortunately, 29-year-old Muyenga Victoria Mpande was declared dead upon arrival.

The survivor is said to be in stable condition.
