Chinese embassy condemns Andara killing

18 April 2019 | Crime


The Chinese embassy has condemned the killing of a 32-year-old man at Andara in Kavango East yesterday. The man was allegedly shot and killed by a Chinese businessman following an altercation. "The Chinese Embassy in Namibia deeply regrets at the criminal case in Divundu of Kavango East Region on April 17 during which a Namibian was killed (sic)," the brief statement reads. "We would like to express our condolence to the deceased and sincere sympathy to the bereaved families." The Chinese embassy further called upon the relevant parties to let the courts deal with the matter and not take the law into their own hands. "We call on all relevant parties to keep calm, deal with the case in legal procedure, and avoid the re-occurrence of vicious events such as beating, smashing and looting," it reads. According to preliminary police reports, the incident allegedly happened after the victim was dismissed by the suspect who was his employer and afterwards demanded his last pay cheque. A scuffle is alleged to have ensued resulting in the killing of the man. The victim was allegedly shot four times in the chest. The suspect was arrested and is due to appear in court on Tuesday next week.
