Rundu — The Tondoro village is in shock after the discovery of the dead bodies of an elderly couple yesterday morning, in western Kavango. The husband and wife were discovered dead in their bedroom, and the police are still awaiting post-morterm results to determine the cause of death.
The couple, identified as 57-year-old Joseph Himarwa Sitoka and a 51-year-old Klara Naita Sindimba were both employed at the local Matava Primary School. Sitoka was the principal and Sindimba a teacher. They are survived by 13 children.
The couple allegedly returned home from the birthday party of a fellow villager the pervious day, without anything appearing untoward. Their bodies were discovered by one of their children who entered their hut in search of sugar.
Detective Inspector Chrispin Mubebo confirmed the incident, but could not shed light on the cause of death. "We do not suspect any foul play, but everything will be determined by the post-mortem results," he said.
