Namibians demonstrate against gender-based violence

– –

Hundreds of Namibians on Thursday hit the streets of the country’s capital Windhoek to demonstrate against recent cases of gender-based violence.

They have demanded investigations and prosecution of persons who perpetuated the violence.

It follows the discovery of the body of a woman in a shallow grave in Walvis Bay, south-west of the country.

Shannon Wasserfall went missing after dropping off her son at a friend’s house and heading out to meet someone.

But her body was discovered six months later after police received a tip off from an anonymous text message.
