Artists robbed at gunpoint

By Emilie Shimbali

A local award-winning gospel singer, Maranatha and other creatives were recently mugged of expensive items in Klein Windhoek.

The singer reportedly lost a lot of important items while filming her video in a corner area with three other Namibians and one Malawian star Wendy Hawara. According to the singer,  unknown criminals confronted them with stones and knives.

“It was a traumatic experience. Near the hills around St. Gorge, four men from the forest approached my car. They smashed my car windows and started asking for money from my friend Wendy, who had just arrived in Namibia. Wendy was stabbed in the ribs, fortunately, she was not injured while my videographer was injured on his arm. They stole everything we own,” she says.

Chief Inspector Elifas Kuwinga, some of the stolen items include;  handbags, Passport, Laptop, Air Ticket, Money, Camera, Huawei p30 and iPhone 7.

 Robbers fled the scene, and police have not yet confirmed the arrests or return.

“People need to be vigilant, especially if they have expensive equipment that will attract criminals. Be vigilant always and scan the area beforehand, ”warns Kuwinga.

Meanwhile, social media users have responded to Maranatha’s grief and tragic loss, with many artists agreeing with her.
