Floris Steenkamp

More than hundred people convened at the Kuisebmond police station at Walvis Bay yesterday, demanding a suspected arsonist be handed over to them.

The arsonist, a male Namibian, allegedly set a number of shacks alight in Kuisebmond on Sunday, leading to his arrest.
An estimated five shacks burnt down.
“This is really chaos and scary. There are a huge number of people at the police station at Kuisebmond and they demand the alleged arsonist be handed over to them.  For the man’s own protection the Police kept him in the holding cells, also making it impossible for him [the accused] to be taken to the Walvis Bay magistrate’s court for his first appearance on a charge of arson”, a person told namib times yesterday.
