      RADIO journalist Elifas Bonifatius allegedly fractured his ankle after he was shot with a rubber bullet by the Namibian Police at China Town.

      This occured amid a police operation sparked by the Namibian Economic Freedom Fighters (NEFF) shutdown of business activities yesterday, and threats of similar disruptions this morning.

      Bonifatius was one of three journalists who were allegedly shot and injured by the Namibian Police Special Reserve Force.

      The other journalists are Julia Heita and Hendrina Kanyolo.

      Bonifatius told The Namibian that he is currently receiving medical attention.

      Kanyolo says they were busy interviewing the NEFF representative when “all hell broke loose”.

      “I just heard guns and I tried to duck behind a car that was there and the bullet hit the car, luckily I was fast,” she says.

      Kanyolo says she was identifying herself to the officers when she was hit by a police woman.

      “While I am explaining to this lady in uniform, she hits me on my buttocks with a black pipe or whatever they call that stick they carry,” she says.
