Almost 30 people were arrested in the Omaheke Region over the festive season for driving under the influence of alcohol.

According to chief inspector David Ndove of the Namibian Police Force, 29 drivers were all found guilty of driving under the influence and fined between N$1 500 and N$2 000 each.

The arrests were carried out in Gobabis between 22 December and 4 January.
