With many police officers unable to afford decent accommodation in Windhoek, the Namibian Police Force is looking at constructing a police village to house members. The Namibia press agency quotes NamPol regional commander for the Khomas Region, Joseph Shikongo as saying it is worrisome that police officers live in shacks or among civilians, and that a presentation was made last week to that effect. Without providing much detail, the Khomas regional commander stressed that the village’s construction will not come cheaply as considerable resources will have to be availed for the project while NamPol’s head of logistics and procurement said the project is in its formative stage and therefore it is premature to delve into the details.
