Rebebe admitted to hospital

Former Bank Windhoek Opuwo branch employee Nico Rebebe, who was arrested at Opuwo on Thursday morning in connection with the alleged theft of N$2 million, has been admitted to a hospital due to diabetes.

The police believe Rebebe has not been taking his medication while he was on the run since January.

Kunene police regional commander commissioner James Nderura confirmed the hospitalisation.

“Yes, he was taken to the hospital because he was not feeling okay. He returned back to the police station; however, he was taken back again and was admitted. It is diabetes and sugar. It seems to me that he was not taking his medication where he was hiding,” Nderura said.
