Police Inspector-General Sebastian Ndeitunga has confirmed to Eagle FM that two Electronic Voting Machines that went missing in 2017 have been found.
Four voting machines were lost in 2017 after the former justice minister Sacky Shanghala had booked them out for use at the Swapo Party Elders’ Council elections at Outapi.
The chief electoral officer, Theo Mujoro, told Eagle FM last month that the Swapo Party had paid for the lost voting machines.
In an interview with Eagle FM Monday, Ndeitunga said two individuals brought in the voting machines last week to the Windhoek police chief Abraham Kanime.
Ndeitunga said the two individuals only realised that what they had were the machines that the police were hunting for only after coming from voting and they had seen the EVMs at the polling stations.
Ndeitunga said one person had one of the machines at Brakwater and that person revealed that the other machine was in Havana.
According to Ndeitunga, Kanime asked the people to bring the machines in and they did.
Ndeitunga said the two unnamed persons are not presently treated as suspects by the police.
Mujoro and Kanime did not pick up their phones.
