A woman was arrested on Sunday for allegedly stealing and slaughtering 25 goats that belonged to her neighbour at Siurungu village in the Kavango West Region.
The Namibian police’s crime investigations coordinator for the region, deputy commissioner Abner Agas, said the woman, an Angolan national, allegedly stole the goats between July and November.
According to him, the complainant suspected that her neighbour had been stealing her goats and reported the case to the traditional authority before involving the police.
He said the police got involved as a fight almost broke out between the two women.
Agas said they investigated and found four slaughtered goats at the suspect’s house.
The accused allegedly confessed to the police that she stole her neighbour’s goats, he added.
The goats are valued at N$24 500.
The woman is expected to appear in the Rundu Magistrate’s Court today.
