Police in the //Kharas region have arrested a Bethanie teacher over a tribal slur about the Nama community.
David Indongo, regional commander for the //Kharas police, confirmed the arrest on Saturday.
He said the suspect faces charges of assault by threatening and of contravention of the Racial Discrimination Act.
One L Kampale, a teacher at Schmelenville Combined School at Bethanie, allegedly posted the following on social media:
“Namas are idiots, no wonder the German slain them all back in 1905 … If you’re a Nama, and you are catching F**k you.”
And: “I manifest Corona should wipe out the entire Nama race in Namibia, especially in Bethanie. I wish I heard an AK47 from Kaisosi to shoot some Namas for fun.”
