The mother of the late Elleste Plaatjie who allegedly suffered a fatal assault at the hands of the Namibian Police Force is requesting that no bail be granted to the two police officers.

Veronica Plaatjie says, she was with her son at the Keetmanshoop State Hospital and witnessed the severe pain he was in.

The police who were on shift that night say Plaatjie, took the incident as a joke and was reluctant to assist them.

Elleste Plaatjie died at the Katutura State Hospital where doctors found that his death was caused by superficial injuries inflicted on multiple regions of his body due to blunt force trauma.
