The Namibian police on Saturday arrested 27 persons at a house in Khomasdal for violating Covid-19 regulations.
The men were apprehended at around 16:15 at a Rand Street home after they had attended a funeral at the Gammams Cemetary in Pioneers Park earlier that day, chief inspector Elifas Kuwinga confirmed.
In a video shared on social media, a crowd gathered at the cemetary can be seen. The video also shows cars spinning in the street while a man can be seen firing several shots with a pistol.
“We arrested the 27 men at a house in Rand Steet in the afternoon. Amongst them was the man who fired the shots,” Kuwinga said.
According to comments on social media, the funeral was for Valdo ‘Boss Lee’ Namaseb, who died in a car accident along Nelson Mandela Avenue.
