She said the incident took place on Aug 12 at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport.

“They were detained for three hours in this immigration ‘office’ with many other Africans, ” she said.

In a press statement, the Namibian high commission said the immigration officer had repeatedly said: “This is Malaysia and not Namibia”. It said the officer had “insultingly thrown” the passports back at Mutelo.

She said the officer had violated the rights of Namibian citizens by unlawfully detaining them upon arrival and ill-treating them in words and demeanour.

Wisma Putra told FMT that the foreign ministry deeply regretted the incident and the official complaint had been forwarded to the Immigration Department for investigation and necessary action.
