Zimbabwean shot in Katutura A 36-year-old Zimbabwean national was allegedly shot and wounded at a bar in Katutura last Wednesday. Police spokesperson Inspector Slogan Matheus said the incident took place at a bar in the Oshandumbala location. According to the police, there was no quarrel or physical fight between the victim and the suspect, who was in the company of three other men. The suspect fled the scene shortly after the shooting. Police investigations are underway. In a separate incident, a 26-year-old woman was allegedly raped by a taxi driver Saturday between 22:00 and 03:00 in a field near the China Town complex in Windhoek's Northern Industrial area. It is alleged that the victim stopped the taxi near Government Office Park and asked the driver to drop her at her residence in Katutura’s Owambo location. Instead of taking the woman home, the taxi driver allegedly drove her to a bushy uninhabited area and raped her twice. He also beat the woman with his fists in the face before fleeing the scene. Network of Caring donates wheelchairs The Network of Caring, an international charity organisation operating in 36 countries around the world, on Saturday donated 80 wheelchairs to people living with disabilities at the Oniipa Rehabilitation Centre in the Oshikoto Region. The wheelchairs were assembled here by members of the charity organisation, after parts were imported from the United States. Speaking during the hand-over ceremony, the organisation’s representative, Dr John Keiseb pointed out that it is the second time the organisation donates wheelchairs to people with disabilities through the Lutheran Church’s Department of Diakonia Social Services (DDSS), under which the Oniipa Rehabilitation Centre falls. “We donated 30 wheelchairs at this centre already in 2013,” said Keiseb, adding that his organisation also donated 20 wheelchairs to people with disabilities in Windhoek earlier this year.
