Regional police commander for the Kunene Region, Commissioner James Nderura Kunene and health director Thomas Shapumba expressed concern over the sudden skyrocketing COVID-19 cases in the region, citing negligence from residents as one of the main causes. Nderura therefore told the Namibia press agency that the police is left with no choice but to apprehend those who are breaking COVID-19 protocols and bring them to face the full wrath of the law, adding that there are still some of the region’s inhabitants who are idle when it comes to observing such protocols, which include the correct wearing of face masks, social distancing and adhering to curfew rules.
