A crowd of people again converged at the Wanaheda Police Station to demand that four more people arrested with regards to the debacle that erupted in Okuryangava after the arrest of Dimbulukeni Nauyoma on Friday, be set free.
The public unrest debacle is gaining momentum after it became known that the police arrested four more people and are looking for four other suspects that converged on the house of the landlord that demanded sex in lieu of money when one of his tenants could not pay rent.
Affirmative Repositioning movement activist, Dimbulukeni Nauyoma interfered with City Police officers while they were demolishing a shack occupied by Wilhelmina Shipingano in Okuryangava after she refused to submit to her landlord’s demand for sex instead of rent money when she was unable to pay.
Shipingano, the victim of the sexual harassment and the brutal eviction by the Windhoek City Police on Friday, alleged that four more people were arrested by the police early on Sunday morning when a large group of people who sided with her confronted the landlord only known as Daniel at his house.
Upon inquiry about the reasons for the arrest of the four other people the Namibian police stated that Shipingano’s former land lord, Tate Daniel, opened a case of assault by threat, malicious assault, malicious damage to property and defamation of character against those arrested. Four more suspects in the matter are still to be arrested.
Those arrested were among the mob of people present when Dimbulukeni Nauyoma was arrested after interfering with police from carrying out their duties while they were demolishing Shipingano’s shack on Friday
While she was part of the group of people gathered in front of the Wanaheda Police Station on Sunday, Shipingano said that she has since Friday evening opened a case of sexual harassment against her former landlord. She also said the AR helped her to find a new house to stay in since she was thrown out on the street on Friday.
The police at the Wanaheda station did not disclose the reasons for his arrest or the charges laid against Dimbulukeni Nauyoma to the people gathered in front of the station in solidarity.
