Yet another village church in the north has had its bell stolen.

According to the police the bell at the Oshitayi ELCIN church at Ondangwa was stolen on Thursday night. It was valued at N$50 000. No arrests have been made.

At the end of last month another church bell valued at N$100 000 was stolen at the Oshitutuma Roman Catholic Church in the Ogongo constituency.

Remains discovered

A goat herder discovered human remains near Farm De Rust about 65 kilometres from Uis on Saturday. A yellow T-shirt, blue sandals, red jersey and orange overalls were among the items discovered at the scene.

According to the police, three men had been reported missing in the area on 23 March.

They were on their way to Brandberg in search of precious stones. Police investigations are continuing.

Stolen car crashed

Bodies of two men were found next to the wreck of a car without registration plates along the gravel road between Hochfeld and Osire on Friday. The two men were identified as brothers who had worked at Farm Nooitgedag. It is alleged that the two had stolen the farm owner's vehicle.

Drugs and drownings

Five people were arrested in the Khomas and Erongo regions over the weekend for being in possession of drugs such as crack cocaine, Mandrax tablets and cannabis. The combined value of the drugs confiscated was N$3 020.

Three people drowned over the weekend. On Saturday, Joseph Megameno Uugwanga (27) drowned while swimming in a pool at the Halali resort in the Etosha National Park. He was from Eloolo village in the Oshikoto Region and was an employee at the resort.

On Sunday, Ananias Natangwe (34) and Naseotweya Titus (23) drowned in a well at Onambandje village in Omusati Region.

They were apparently trying to remove mud from the well.

Two other people who were working with them were rushed to the Okahao district hospital.

One of them is in a critical condition.
