Erongo’s Andreas Nelumbu Promoted As Police Attaché To Luanda-Angola

By: Eba Kandovazu

Nampol Inspector General Sebastian Ndeitunga yesterday affected the promotion of Erongo Police Regional Commander, Commissioner Andreas Nelumbu, as the Police Attaché to Luanda-Angola.

He replaces Commissioner Nicholas Endjala, who went on retirement.

Speaking to The Villager, Nelumbu said he is still a regular police officer whose duty is to serve Namibia. He says he will now represent Namibia to his fullest capacity in Luanda.

“There is nothing special about this appointment because it is just the task that changed. I have moved to different places before in my police capacity, and this is just another one. There’s nothing special, but the task has changed because I will now be stationed outside Namibia. Anywhere I go, as long as I am doing police work, I am happy,” Nelumbu said, adding that it is just a transfer.

He also said he does not entirely care about the diplomat status that comes with his new job, saying that he cares about upholding his police duties.

Deputy Commissioner Nikolaus Kupembona, the Khomas Regional Crime Coordinator, is promoted to a Commissioner rank and appointed the Erongo Police Regional Commander. At the same time, Deputy Commissioner Chrispin Mubebo is transferred from Karas Region and appointed as the new Khomas Regional Crime Coordinator replacing Commissioner Nikolaus Kupembona.

Chief Inspector Nicodemus Mbango, a staff officer at the Otjozondjupa Crime Coordinator’s office, is appointed as the Karas Regional Crime Coordinator and promoted to a Deputy Commissioner rank.

These changes are effective 1 June 2022, the police said.

“The Inspector General, the management, rank and file and civilian component of the Namibian Police Force congratulates all the officers and wish them well as they embark on their new assignments,” a police statement said.
