The police are offering a N$20 000 reward for information which may lead to the arrest of a suspect in the murder of Constable Talamondjila Petrus (35).

Petrus’s body was found in the riverbed behind the Wimpy café in Mariental on the morning of 21 August.

It is alleged that Petrus was murdered between 17 and 21 August.

“The late Constable Petrus was a young and vibrant officer who had his career ahead of him, but was cold-bloodedly murdered.

“A case of murder has been opened and is under investigation, however there are no leads with regards to suspects,” said Deputy Commissioner Kauna Shikwambi.

Anyone with information on the murder is asked to contact the nearest police station or Inspector Gert Boois on 081 259 8664.

Shikwambi said any such information would be treated as confidential and informants need not fear reprisal.
