Deputy Minister for Marginalised Communities, Royal /Ui/o/oo on Sunday night survived an accident after the official vehicle he was driving allegedly hit a truck trailer on the B8 road outside Grootfontein.

The Namibian Police Force’s Otjozondjupa Commander, Commissioner Heinrich Tjiveze, in an interview with Nampa on Monday said the minister sustained minor injuries and he was in a stable condition.

“The minister and his seven passengers were all admitted to the Grootfontein State Hospital shortly after the accident,” he said.

According to Tjiveze, the accident was reported at 23h00 on Sunday, approximately eight kilometres east of Grootfontein.

Both the truck and /Ui/o/oo’s vehicle were coming from the same direction, driving behind each other towards Grootfontein, the police commander added.

Police investigations in the matter continue.
