Namibian Police Force (NamPol) Deputy Commissioner Sylvanus Nghishindimbwa told a media briefing here on Sunday 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.
The police suspect the man has been dead for over a week.
Nghishindimbwa then called on the public to visit the Police mortuary if they have relatives who are missing for over a week or more.
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 was an employee at the Ministry of Finance here. She 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.
In a separate incident, thieves tied up a security guard and stole an unspecified amount of money from the Coca-Cola Depot in Khomasdal during the early morning of Sunday.
Nghishindimbwa said after tying up the guard with a rope, the thieves gained access to the building, opened a save and stole an unconfirmed amount of cash.
He said it is not clear what other items the thieves got away with, as the company’s management could not confirm all the stolen items yet.
Meanwhile, the senior Khomas police officer said theft out of motor vehicles is on the increase in the capital.
Nghishindimbwa then issued a stern appeal to the public to lock their car doors and put valuables out of sight, or in a safe place.
He said thieves are smashing windows with stones, rocks, or any other hard objects to gain entry into vehicles.
