Wasserfall family blames police for ‘poor investigations’

Raymond Wasserfall

An uncle of the late Shanon Wasserfall, who was found buried in the dunes at Walvis Bay in 2020, says his family is not blaming judge Christie Liebenberg for the outcome of his niece’s murder case.

Raymond Wasserfall on Wednesday said the family is instead blaming the police for “not conducting investigations properly”.

After being prosecuted in connection with Wasserfall’s death, Walvis Bay resident Azaan Madisia and her brother Steven Mulundu were found not guilty on a charge of murder in the Windhoek High Court on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, the police’s commander for community affairs in the Erongo region, inspector Ileni Shapumba, said police officers worked hard in the Wasserfall case.

“We will appreciate their feedback, which is negative criticism. Let them come forward and speak to us. They have been part of the investigation, unless one can say we have ignored them in the process of investigation. But if there is anything they can point out, we will appreciate it if they can come forward and point that out with us. We should always work together,” he said.
