RUNDU: Prosecutor-General Martha Imalwa will decide on the case of the 21-year-old woman accused of killing the baby of another woman by slitting her throat at the Ruuga village in the Kavango Region on 20 November this year.
Veronika Nehepo Sangotjo appeared before Rundu Magistrate Victor Nyazo on Friday, and was told that her case was postponed to November this year for the Prosecutor-General’s decision.
During her earlier appearance on 04 April this year, Sangotjo pleaded not guilty to a charge of murder.
The 21 year-old woman was arrested by the Namibian Police Force (NamPol) on 29 December 2011 on suspicion of killing the baby of another woman on the same day.
The accused woman was remanded in custody, as the crime she is accused of is serious.
Two additional buildings at the maternity waiting home at Eenhana in the Ohangwena Region were officially opened here on Friday.
The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) funded the construction of the two buildings to the tune of about N.dollars 300 000.
The Eenhana Maternity Home was established a few years ago with resources from the German Development Services; Eenhana Town Council, which donated the land; Acacia Grassroots Organisation and others.
It provides decent accommodation to expecting mothers who used to wait for delivery under threes close to the Eenhana District Hospital.
The UNFPA also donated a Toyota Land Cruiser 4×4 ambulance, worth some N.dollars 404 000, to the Eenhana District Hospital.
