Three Ugandan nationals arrested for operating as traditional healers

The Namibian Police in the Khomas Region arrested three Ugandan nationals allegedly operating as traditional healers.
They will be charged with fraud, working without permits and administering medicine without permission, among others.
The two men and one woman were found in a possession of over N$37 000 in cash and some of the tools of their trade.
They were also found in possession of medication used to treat the aftereffects of abortion, cellphones, 14 syringes and pictures of people.
Evidence of N$200 000 sent out of the country was also found.
The suspects allegedly claimed, among others, to restore lost love within 24 hours.
To open an account clients pay N$900. To sacrifice someone you’ll pay N$16 000. Abortions cost N$6 000 while disappearing of court cases is priced at N$1 200.
The NBC has seen a conversation between one the healers and a client where the client was ‘treated’ for unknown ailments, which would eventually cost her N$100 000.
Deputy Commissioner, Edwin Kanguatjivi said the trio will be charged with multiple violations of the country's laws and will appear in court on Thursday.
The suspects have also reportedly admitted that they are not traditional healers but business people.
Kanguatjivi warned the public to refrain from visiting ‘healers’.
