THE Namibian Police Force in the Oshana Region will not interfere with the operations of liquor license holders during this festive season. Oshana Regional Commander, Commissioner Naftal Lungameni Sakaria, made this clear during the launch of the Oshana Festival Operation at the Ongwediva Oshiko roadblock on Thursday.

Sakaria emphasized that they will allow liquor outlets to conduct their business in accordance with their trading licenses. He said, “We have thoroughly examined the Liquor Act, and it does not indiscriminately prevent the trading of liquor on public holidays unless it is indicated in their license.”

He added that they are supportive of business activities and will not disrupt any operations during the festival season. Furthermore, Sakaria issued a warning to those entering the region with malicious intentions, stating that such activities will not be tolerated. He also emphasized that traffic law violators are likely to spend their Christmas and New Year in jail.

Sakaria highlighted the region’s achievement of a 7% reduction in crimes of concern. A total of 5,795 cases were reported during the 2021/22 financial year, compared to 5,412 cases reported in the previous year, representing a difference of 383 cases.

Meanwhile, Oshana Governor Elia Irimari called on all residents in the Oshana Region to establish a strong relationship with the Namibian Police Force. He urged everyone, including security company personnel, Neighborhood Watch group members, and the Women and Men Network Against Crime, to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activities to law enforcement.
