Hit and run suspects still at large

The Namibian Police are still searching for the three drivers connected to the death by hit and run of Walvis Bay resident John Robinson (38) at Langstrand on Saturday morning.

A case of culpable homicide and failure to ascertain the extend of injuries or damages sustained and to render necessary assistance are being investigated after a ‘hit and run’ incident in the early hours of Saturday morning at Langstrand.
It is alleged that between 03:30 and 04:00 Robinson, who was walking along the B2, was struck by a small white pick-up, and then by two sedan vehicles. All three of these drivers, who were travelling from Swakopmund to Walvis Bay, had apparently stopped at the scene, but after realising that they had driven over and killed a person fled the scene.
A road user travelling from Swakopmund eventually came across Robinson’s body and contacted the Police. According to family members, Robinson, his two sisters and his two daughters were visiting family at Langstrand when Robinson decided to walk to the main road to hitch a ride back to Walvis Bay.
The three drivers or their passengers are requested to urgently contact Dep. Comm. Iikuyu at 081 246 4757 or the following detectives: Det. Insp. Gurirab at 081 318 2181; Det. Warrant Officer Nghiteeka at 081 268 9687 or Sergeant Kapunda at 081 447 5454 in order to obtain their explanations to solve the matter and provide the family with closure.
