Two men died on the spot on Monday when the car they were travelling in overturned on the Rundu-Divundu gravel road at Shamvhura.

The horrific accident occurred at about 13h07 whilst they were travelling from west to east. Upon reaching their destination at Shamvhura in Ndiyona Constituency in Kavango East, the driver allegedly lost control of the vehicle which overturned.

They were travelling in a gold Honda hatchback with registration number N12206RU.
The driver Paulus Joachim, 32, who is male and a resident of Rundu, and one other passenger Sibungo Mutero, of unknown age, also male and a resident of Rundu, sustained serious injuries. They were both rushed to the Rundu hospital for urgent medical treatment and are reported to be in a critical condition.

“The two deceased were identified as Martin Muduva Shikongo, age unknown, and Juliace Thindhimba Dyakugha, 36, both residents of Rundu,” said Kavango East regional crime investigations coordinator Deputy Commissioner Willie Bampton, who confirmed the case to New Era yesterday.
