NamPol’s Deputy Inspector-General for Operations, Joseph Shikongo has warned Namibians to refrain from taking matters of the law into their own hands, saying Namibia is not a lawless country. This, after leaders of the Namibia Economic Freedom Fighters entered the Cheetah Cement factory outside Otjiwarongo without any authorization and demanded the removal of Chinese nationals whom they claimed had been employed there illegally, without valid work permits. “We are warning people that are shutting down people’s business without following the right procedures and structures to stop doing so,” Shikongo said, insisting that Nampol will “not … allow anarchy or chaos in Namibia”.
