Oil spill as far north as Mile 108

Doubt whether a single oil leak could result in this

On the picture to the left a Walvis Bay resident is seen literally peeling sticky oil from his feet soles after a fishing outing to a popular spot south of Henties Bay over the weekend. Namport is currently in doubt whether the vessel Urzu that sprung an oil leak in the port of Walvis Bay can actually be behind such a large oil spill. Oil has now been reported on beaches as far as Mile 108 leading the port authority to belief that either Urzu came in from the north leaking or that there is another oil spill originating from another vessel.
