A Zimbabwean national who is in Namibia illegally, was arrested at Katima Mulilo in connection with fraud, forgery and altering of documents.
The suspect was allegedly issuing false COVID-19 test results to truck drivers to proceed to neighbouring countries, and charging up to US$1,000 per fake COVID-19 certificate.
A report by a Namibian television said the suspect was caught red handed and authorities suspect he had insiders in the Ministry of Health and Social Services assisting him.
His accomplices are reported to have fled during the arrest and a manhunt has been launched for them.
