Shikongo docket back to PG – Mutota

Joseph Shikongo
… PG not aware the docket is back to her office

Namibian Police deputy inspector general Elias Mutota says the police have submitted the case file related to the car accident involving inspector general Joseph Shikongo to the Office of the Prosecutor General (PG) at the Oshakati High Court.

The accident occurred in December 2022 on the Ondangwa-Oshikango road.

Shikongo’s vehicle collided with another car, tragically resulting in the deaths of Frans Ndengu, Stefanus Lukas and Sofia Ananias.

Following the incident, the police launched an investigation into Shikongo for potential charges of culpable homicide, reckless driving and negligent driving.

Mutota told The Namibian yesterday that the police investigations in the matter are completed.

Prosecutor general Martha Imalwa says she was not aware if the docket has reached her office yet.

“I did not check which docket had come into my office. I have been busy,” she says.

Deputy prosecutor general advocate Lucious Matota told The Namibian yesterday that he has been out of the office for three weeks and knows nothing about it.

Ndengu’s brother, Naboth, says his family faces a lot of challenges due to his brother’s death.

“He was a breadwinner in the house and his young siblings were depending on him for school fees and other expenses,” Naboth says.

“As I’m talking, I’m unemployed. I tried my best when I bought that car and gave it to my brother in order to work, for my family to survive, but for now, we lost our brother and our car, without any information of what happened to him,” he says.

He says his brother died like he was not a person and that the car was removed from the scene without concern for the family.

“They keep that car in the station. While I am paying for it at the end of month, we have kids that are no longer going to school, as no one can pay for their fees,” Naboth says.
