WINDHOEK: Deputy Prosecutor-General Jackson Kuutondokwa is expected to make a third appearance in the Katutura Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday on a charge of drunken driving.
Kuutondokwa previously appeared on 14 August this year before Windhoek Magistrate Conchita Olivier on a charge of driving a motor vehicle while allegedly being under the influence of alcohol when his case was remanded until 31 October this year.
“This was a final postponement for the prosecuting authorities to obtain the results of his blood test to determine the level of alcohol,” Magistrate Olivier said at the time.
The deputy PG is free on a warning.
Public Prosecutor Salome Bampton appeared for the State that day.
According to a summary of substantial facts contained in the charge-sheet, Kuutondokwa was arrested by the Namibian Police Force (NamPol) on a Sunday evening in April this year at about 20h40 along Independence Avenue in Katutura, allegedly driving a motor vehicle while he was under the influence of alcohol.
He spent some hours in police custody upon his arrest that day.
Meanwhile, on 08 December 2002, Kuutondokwa also pleaded guilty to having driven a motor vehicle while under the influence of liquor.
He was sentenced to a fine of N.dollars 5 000 or 12 months imprisonment, of which N.dollars 2 500 or six months were suspended for a period of three years on condition that he was not convicted of a similar offence committed during the period of suspension.
