Investigations delay renovations of Kalahari border post police station
The Kalahari border post police station on the Namibia-Botswana border in the Omaheke region, that burned down earlier this year, has not yet been renovated. 
 
The police station caught fire in January and the Police at the regional capital, Gobabis say, the investigation is still continuing, thus the delay in renovations.
 
The Namibia-Botswana border post is situated about 110 kilometres east of Gobabis.
 
Omaheke Crime Investigations Coordinator, Marcellus Maritsane says, police administrative work is now done in tents.
 
Deputy Commissioner Maritsane told NBC News that soon after the fire, an architect was tasked with drawing up a plan for the new station and barracks which was forwarded to the head office in Windhoek.
 
New barracks which are to be inaugurated at the end of July are also still unoccupied.
 
The officers are currently accommodated in tents and Maritsane says this has not deterred them from upholding law and order in the area.
 
Deputy Commissioner Maritsane says the crime rate in the region as recorded in March had decreased drastically as a result of community policing. 
 
He pointed out that stocktheft had also been contained through team work between police officers at the border post and those stationed at the Gobabis Police Station.
