Drugs remain a big concern for the Namibian police in the Erongo region, especially at schools in Walvis Bay and Swakopmund. The police say that the addictiveness of drugs leads people to steal in order to satisfy their addiction while some of these cases lead to more serious crimes like passion killings and rape. NamPol’s Erongo Regional Commander, Commissioner Andreas Nelumbu told Future Media News that compounding this, the upsurge in Covid-19 cases makes it difficult for police to conduct operations, because of the fear of the virus.
