It is reported that the man, his wife, and their two children were crossing into Namibia from Zambia's Mwanawasa Compound a few kilometres from the Katima Mulilo Border Post.

They were attacked shortly after entering the bushes of Chantuhu by unknown men, but the wife and her two children managed to escape, leaving the husband and father behind.

A Zambian and Zimbabwean national appeared before the Katima Mulilo Magistrate's Court on charges of illegal harvesting of timber in Namibia.

They are 60-year-old Domingo Armando,  a Zambian national and 50-year-old Thomas Mupfugami, a Zimbabwean national. 

Both suspects are represented by a private lawyer, Ivine Ntelamo from Inonge Mainga Attorney. 

They were not asked to plea to the charges. 

The duo was remanded in custody after the state had objected to the granting of bail because they are all foreigners and fears that they might flee the country.
