Peneyambeko Hangala-Ndeunyema was a life skills teacher at Mwadinomho Combined School.
The Ohangwena police said her body was found along the Oshivelo-Tsintsabis gravel road.
“With the details we obtained from our investigation, we informed the Oshikoto police to assist us to search in that area, and they recovered the body. We were only investigating a missing person’s case and now Oshikoto is investigating the death and all the circumstances surrounding it,” Ohangwena police spokesperson, Warrant Officer Abner Kaume Itumba, said.
He said earlier the police started investigating the matter although a missing person’s case was not opened.
“A handbag containing her documents was picked at Oshikango on Tuesday and it is not yet known how it got there or who dropped it. It is currently in the possession of the police,” Itumba said.
He said according to the family, Hangala-Ndeunyema told people she was going to Omuthiya to attend to something, without indicating exactly what she was going to do.
“She parked her car where she usually parks it, whenever she goes somewhere, but she did not leave the key where she usually leaves it. Therefore, nobody knew which direction she took or with whom or how,” he added.
