The body of the three-year-old toddler who drowned on Monday evening was found this morning. Police spokesperson Chief Inspector Kauna Shikwambi confirmed to Namibian Sun that the lifeless body of Jason Shindinge was found at around 10:30. Shindinge was reported missing after their shack was swept away by a flash flood following heavy rain on Monday evening. His mother, Saima Thomas, also drowned on the night, and her body was found about two kilometres away from where their shack had stood. Jason’s body was reportedly found a few metres from where the body of his mother was found. Thomas's partner managed to survive the tragedy, along with their three-day-old baby girl. The incident took place at the Abraham Iiyambo informal settlement on the outskirts of Hakahana in Windhoek.
