A joint investigation is underway into the killing last month of two Namibians by the Botswana Defence Force.
The investigation by the Botswana and Namibian police comes after the two Namibian nationals were shot dead in the Chobe National Park for allegedly poaching on the 17th of July.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs summoned Botswana's High Commissioner to Namibia, Duke Lefhoko, last week to explain the circumstances surrounding the shooting.
The diplomat informed the Ministry that a joint investigation of the incident was underway.
Officials of the Foreign Affairs Ministry urged Botswana to cooperate fully with the Namibian Police as they carried out the joint investigation.
Both sides underscored that while the two countries did not condone poaching, it was important that they exercised maximum restraint to avoid loss of life and ensure that the culprits were arrested and prosecuted.
