Swakopmunders het Vrydagoggend ‘n perd van 'n ander kleur gesien, nadat 'n zebramerrie haar vulletjie die see wou kom wys het.

Volgens brandweerhoof, mnr Adri Goosen, is een van die gestreeptes vroegoggend by die ou rioolstasie in Tamariskia opgemerk, waarna dit na Ocean View Spar se kant toe galop het. Van hier is die ma-zebra na die DRC se kant aangejaag, met polisie, verkeersbeamptes en die brandweer wat hul hande vol gehad het.

Mnr Goosen sê dat hulle daarin kon slaag om haar in die omgewing van die nuwe rioolstasie te vang, waarna sy in die woestyn vrygelaat is. Die vul is blykbaar by Namib Primêre Skool opgespoor, waar dit besig was om met die kinders te speel. Dit is onduidelik presies hoe die twee gestreepte diere in die dorp gekom het en of hulle dalk maar net 'n bietjie vakansie wou kom hou het.

Een kenner meen dat die diere moontlik as gevolg van die droogte, wat tans die land teister, na die kus gekom het op soek na water en voedsel.
