A manager at Group 4 Security company, Willem Du Plessis is being sued for N$1 million for wrongful assault by a security guard who has been identified as Nangha Johannes.
According to court papers seen by Eagle FM, Nangha has also dragged the security company before the court.
“On or about November 2019 and at the head office of the first defendant, (G4S) in Windhoek, Namibia, the plaintiff was unlawfully and wrongfully assaulted by the second defendant, that the second defendant threatened to shoot and kill the plaintiff, using vulgar and explicit language in reference to or describing the plaintiff,” reads the court documents signed by human rights lawyer, Norman Tjombe.
Tjombe has said that due to this, Nangha feared for his security and felt humiliated, traumatized and degraded.
