Likoro, who President Hifikepunye Pohamba recently appointed as the special advisor to the Minister of Lands and Resettlement, Alpheus Naruseb, spent a night in the Katima Mulilo police holding cells and appeared in court today where he secured bail.
Senior police officers in both Windhoek and Katima Mulilo evaded questions about Likoro’s arrest saying they could not confirm before the suspect appeared in court.
On Monday, police Deputy Commissioner Edwin Kanguatjivi could not confirm or deny the allegations.
“At this point I cannot comment or confirm until the suspect appears in court,” Kanguatjivi said.
The Regional Commander of the Namibian Police in the Caprivi Region, Commissioner Bollen Sankwasa, could also not confirm the arrest, because he was not in the region at the time.
“I heard something along the same line but cannot confirm as I am not in Katima. I am in Otjiwarongo as we speak,” Sankwasa told the Windhoek Observer on Monday.
Likoro held the position of Swapo regional coordinator in the Kavango Region before the president appointed him to the position of special advisor to the Minister of Lands and Resettlement.
