Inspector General of the Namibian police, Lieutenant General Sebastian Ndeitunga, says that the country recorded a total of 98 640 criminal cases during the 2021/22 financial year, ranging from robbery, to rape, violence against women and children, and other forms of domestic violence, as well as murder, theft of a motor vehicle and livestock, dealing in drugs, housebreaking, and theft. Ndeitunga said that while there are “many dynamics involved in influencing the level of crime in each region,” he felt that the force needed to revisit the strategies to combat crime. His sentiments were echoed by Minister of Home Affairs, Immigration, Safety and Security, Albert Kawana, who said that the prevalence of crime in the country is a matter of concern.
