Tshilunga's body was found in his Toyota Land Cruiser near the Daan Viljoen roadblock.
“A police officer who lives in the same area observed the abandoned vehicle and upon closer inspection he found the body of Tshilunga. He had shot himself with his own licensed firearm,” Shikwambi said.
The Namibian Central Intelligence Service (NCIS) boss, Phillemon Malima, yesterday refused to comment on Tshilunga's death.

According to media reports he had been released on N$40 000 bail and was to appear in court again on 18 October.
