Namibian Police Force Zambezi regional commander, Commissioner Marius Katamila said one of the main challenges faced by the police in the region is arresting suspects involved in cross-border crimes, due to, among other things, the dense vegetation in the region, which makes some areas inaccessible. He also noted that while the police work well with their counterparts in neighbouring countries, the COVID-19 pandemic and regulations implemented as a result thereof have made such co-ordination difficult.
