    Looks like criminal damage, especially if it's obvious that these are heritage sites. The world could do without yahoos like these.

    They should be shot, really.

    I saw that little house December on our way to and from Luderitz and it such a special, albeit forlorn, sight. I was absolutely saddened when I read about the vandalism last night on FB.

    Absolute hats off to the people who went through the trouble to track the idiots down. I honestly hope there will be serious repercussions for them.

    If that logic was followed re abandoned buildings then why arent folk cutting down the trees in deadvlei as they are probably great for campfires? Because people understand that such dead and abandoned sights are part of the allure of Namibia. Its almost childish what they've done, looks like the big thrill is to see your name painted on a wall as if that is some sort of affirmation of their worth in life, I pity anyone who had to share a campsite with them.

    I see that more instances of vandalism by these mamparras are popping up like on road signs on the way to Sesriem and Solitaire

    Kan hul nie gedagvaar word om in Namibie te verskyn in die hof nie?

    Dagvaar hul vir al die skade, hul moet betaal vir hul sogenaamde pret in 'n besondere land. Gooi hul in die tronk en gooi die sleutel weg.

    Sulke dinge maak my sommer omgekrap.

    More and more reports are coming in yes, there is quite a team on their tail, so we are expecting some good results.

    Hopefully they will be able to charge the guys with something, seeing as they actually broke multiple laws. What really gets to me is how proud they are about it, lets go to a little backwards country, get up to a whole bunch of ###, then make videos and post it on social media, we wont get caught.....mistake

    And more cases are popping out about the same guys doing this kind of nonsense in other countries.

    Well done to Namibia and especially to the guys going after these idiots.
    Wish we had more people like this.
    Hopefully all these guys are charged and brought back to Namibia to repair what they have damaged.
