DIYOGHA: A man who allegedly stabbed and killed his sister after an argument over soft porridge in the eastern Kavango region made a brief first appearance in the Rundu Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday.
The 22-year-old Kudumo Haushiku was not asked to plead, and his case was postponed to 13 November by Rundu Magistrate Victor Nyazo for further police investigations.
Haushiku, who has been charged with murder and domestic violence, was remanded in custody until his next court appearance.
He was arrested by the Namibian Police Force (NamPol) last Sunday after he allegedly brutally murdered his older sister with a knife on the same day at Diyogha village, which is situated some 190 kilometres east of Rundu in the Kavango Region’s Mukwe Constituency.
It is alleged that an argument broke out between Haushiku and his sister, the 27-year-old Kathiku Imelda Ngandu, over soft porridge which Ngandu and other family members had eaten without leaving some for the accused.
Haushiku, who apparently became very irritated during the argument, allegedly took out a knife and stabbed his sister several times before hitting her once on the head with a stone.
Ngandu died on the spot.
