Foreign nationals appear in Katima Mulilo magistrate court on charges of illegal timber harvest


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.
