'Operation Kalahari Desert' member Kapata Kamati (33 ), who was injured during an alleged fight with a civilian on Sunday, underwent head surgery yesterday, and is recovering well at Lady Pohamba Private Hospital.
Khomas police regional commander Joseph Shikongo confirmed this to The Namibian yesterday.
Kamati, an NDF soldier, was allegedly injured when a civilian he and members of his team were assaulting at Windhoek's Damara location headbutted him in retaliation, and he fell down and fainted.
This incident took place at the corner of Dawid Goreseb and Frans Hoesemab streets, after Kamati and other members of the operation had reportedly gone to pick up a colleague who lives in the area, to report for duty.
Shikongo said one man was arrested, and another one is still on the run after the incidents.
