The family of the late Mathew “Shippi” Shipanga, who was shot and killed by members of the Namibian police (Nampol) last year, have set in motion plans to sue Nampol due to the authorities’ failure to finalise his inquest a year after the horrific incident.
A family member who spoke to Informanté confirmed that Shipanga’s elderly mother and children, with the assistance of human rights lawyer, Norman Tjombe, are in the process of suing Nampol and the Ministry of Safety and Security for an unspecified amount for the loss of income they suffered since the cold-blooded killing of Shipanga by the police in the early hours of Sunday 7 February 2011.
