THE man who was killed during a hit and run incident in Walvis Bay last week has been identified as the 30-year-old Willdrew Visagie.
According to the Namibian Police in Walvis bay, the victim was eventually identified by his mother on Friday afternoon.
The positive identification of the victim occurred after the driver of the vehicle that struck him was remanded in custody by a Walvis Bay magistrate after she was arrested at her Long Beach home last week.
The 34-year-old Charlet de Bruyn faces charges of culpable homicide, failing to stop at the scene of a fatal motor vehicle accident, and failing to ascertain the extent of damage or if the victim was injured or killed.
The hit and run incident occurred on the B2 Road last Tuesday evening and resulted in the death of Visagie.
At the time of the incident, De Bruyn was travelling in a Ford Ranger double cab bakkie.
