GROOTFONTEIN: The Namibian Police Force (NamPol) in the Otjozondjupa Region on Tuesday received seven police stations as well as 334 police officers from the Oshikoto Police administration.
The handover is part of NamPol’s process to realign the 13 police regions in accordance with the boundaries of the country’s political demarcations.
Long before the independence of Namibia, the 13 police regions had been operating differently from the political regions.
The seven police stations were administered by the Oshikoto Police Force, yet fall within the Otjozondjupa Region’s boundaries.
These are situated in Tsumkwe, Grootfontein, Kombat, Otjituuo, Maroelaboom, Gam and Mukata.
Yesterday, Otjozondjupa Regional Police Commander Joseph Anghuwo and Anne-Marie Nainda of the Oshikoto Region signed an agreement for each to administer their own police force members as per their political demarcations.

He noted that Namibia is playing Malawi next year in the 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifiers, and Namibia needs all the games it can get to keep their players together.
