Truck drivers coming into country to be quarantined for 14 days

Truck drivers coming into country to be quarantined for 14 days

At the roadblock north of Okahandja 14 vehicles did not make the deadline to get out of or into the Khomas Region before the lockdown.
However, the Inspector General of the Namibian Police foresee a problem with truck drivers coming into the country, who have to be quarantined for 14 days.
This will seriously compromise the supply chain of goods, particularly from South Africa, as the trucking companies will be required to have drivers on standby to replace those on quarantine.
Sebastian Ndeitunga said this is something that has to be addressed as a matter of urgency.
At the roadblock outside Rehoboth, there were more trucks pulled off as they are now entering through Ariamsvlei and Noordoewer after having difficulty entering through Botswana.
The uniformed forces were informed of some truck drivers taking the Otjinene road where there is no roadblock, but two South African drivers were so far caught at a roadblock that was set up to catch those avoiding the Gobabis-Windhoek roadblock.
Okahandja and Rehoboth are included within the lockdown area, although they are part of the Otjozondjupa and Hardap regions, respectively.
