THE lifeless body of the 20-year-old Ndatala Victorina Kamwandi was discovered in a mahangu field by her neighbour after she was struck by lightning on Friday evening.
Inspector Linekeela Shikongo from the Namibian Police’s Community Affairs Division in the Omusati Region, said the incident occurred at Omaandi Village near Oshikuku at around 18:45.
“The deceased person was on her way home from the Vision Cuca Shops, and walking through a mahangu field when she was allegedly struck by lightning,” said Shikongo.
Inspector Shikongo said Kamwandi was from Omaandi village and added that the deceased person’s next of kin has been informed about her untimely death.
The Namibian Police does not suspect any foul play at this stage but the deceased person’s remains were taken to the Okahao Police Mortuary where the post mortem will be conducted to determine the actual cause of death.
