_: RUNDU: Employees of the Rundu Town Council discovered a dead fetus, trapped in a sewerage pipe at the Tutungeni suburb on Thursday.
The discovery was made when council employees were called to unblock the blocked sewerage line.
The fetus, which appears to between four to six months old, is suspected to have either been flushed down the toilet or dumped into a manhole.
Public Relations Officer, Benjamin Makayi, said the incident was disturbing, and cautioned those who throw prohibited materials into the sewerage system, that they will be prosecuted.
According to Makayi, a similar discovery was made last year.
The ongoing registration of war veterans in the Karas Region will be boosted when officials from the Ministry of Veterans’ Affairs’ head office will be in the region from 13 September 2012 to assist.
These officials will, amongst others, examine who was registered but did not receive their benefits yet.
Karas regional veterans’ coordinator, Daniel Ndevelo said yesterday that people from head office will come and find out why some of the veterans’ money approved did not reach their accounts yet, if it was embezzled or they provided wrong bank account details.
Ndevelo told Nampa that said people are waiting for their money, and are complaining and asking what is happening.
Veterans will be informed where to go and register themselves when the time is right, said Ndevelo, adding that potential registration venues could be constituency offices.
