Angolan children in Namibia’s corridors under discussion


Namibia's Ambassador to Angola, Patrick Nandago, says the issues of the alleged Angolan children roaming around the streets of Windhoek and the northern parts of the country are a security concern.

Ambassador Nandago noted that the issue is being discussed by both countries to establish their origins and find a lasting solution.

Begging Angolan minors around the streets and malls a concern


A crisis of children, mostly female, roaming around the streets and malls of the capital, selling wooden goods and begging for coins, has become a concern.

It has become an everyday occurrence for one to encounter these children from neighbouring Angola walking along streets or malls in Windhoek, begging for money to buy bread, all repeating the same phrases as if trained.

Looking into the eyes of these children can be a traumatising experience, as they look worn out, emotionless, and neglected.
