A NOTORIOUS beggar and his gang of street kids in the Klein-Windhoek area has taken his public harassment to the next level by exposing himself and shouting abuse at especially women and elderly motorists at the traffic intersection of Sam Nujoma Drive and Nelson Mandela Avenue.
His favourite hangout is less than 300 metres from the Klein Windhoek Police Station. In spite of various complaints, his intimidation tactics that includes the opening of doors to vehicles and screaming abuse at the occupants continues unabated. In the process some vehicles have been dented and scratched in his attempts to extort money from drivers.
Catherine O’Connor-Smith’s video tells a tale of the tramp’s impunity while law enforcement presence is nearly permanent in this drinking hotspot area of Windhoek.
