The Namibian Police Force has made arrangements with fuel suppliers to have their fuel stations refuelled and then only make future payments as police fuel station reserves have run dry due to a slashed budget. Speaking to the Namibia press agency, Inspector General, Lieutenant General Sebastian Ndeitunga, explained that “it is really frustrating when officers are coming to the extent of not having fuel and is even more serious when it comes to a situation where they are not able to move to a crime scene because of the situation,” urging police officers in all regions to economise the fuel once received and make sure that vehicles only move when it is absolutely necessary.
