Nine South African Muslims from Cape Town had valid visas to visit Namibia. They were there for a couple of days when they were accosted at a Mosque in Keetmanshoop— Iqbal Jassat, Media Review Network
Jassat says issues around their visas were used as a pretext to take them into custody and have them deported.
