Twin brothers (4) died in a trunk at Okatope village in the Oshikoto region on Sunday.

At around 18h00, the mother arrived back home and found the deceaseds lying dead in a trunk which was in the sleeping room. The trunk was covered, which seems the cover closed itself, but not locked,” Kalompo-Nashikaku said.
