WINDHOEK: Two people allegedly committed suicide in the capital on Friday.
Namibian Police Force (NamPol) Deputy Commissioner Sylvanus Nghishindimbwa told a media briefing here yesterday that the decomposed body of a man was found hanging from a rope on a tree in the field close to the 7de Laan informal settlement in the Otjimuise area.
Nghishindimbwa said wood collectors found the deceased between 08h00 and 10h00 on Friday morning.
In the other suicide, a 23-year-old woman was found hanging dead in a shack in the Hakahana area between 10h00 and 11h00 on Friday morning.
According to Nghishindimbwa, the deceased, who was an employee at the Ministry of Finance here, reported for duty on Friday morning, but returned to the shack shortly afterwards and took her own life.
No foul play is suspected, and her next of kin were informed.
