A SIMPLE act of kindness resolved a mystery of a man, the 33-year-old Johannes Ishidimbwa, that went missing from a village in the Omusati Region late in July.
According to Chief Inspector Kauna Shikwambi a service station attendant from Windhoek, who got worried about a man that he noticed sleeping on the premises of the service station, informed the Windhoek City Police because he got concerned about Ishidimbwa’s health and safety.
“The concerned employee at the Service Station alerted Windhoek City Police who took the man to the Katutura State Hospital and subsequently to the Windhoek Central Mental facility, where he was eventually admitted.”
Chief Inspector Shikambi said Ishidimbwa’s family was also informed that he was found safe and sound and about him being admitted to the hospital.
The Namibian Police’s Public Relations Division issued a missing person report last week in which they said the Ishdimbwa was reported missing on 22 July and that he hails from the Eengolo Village in the Omusati Region.
Although the service station attendant never saw the missing persons report his concern for his fellow human being resolved the mystery for Ishidimbwa’s family and the Namibian Police.
