RUNDU: Two young men accused of killing a security guard at the Ngepi Camp on Sunday pleaded not guilty to two charges of murder and robbery with aggravating circumstances during their first appearance in the Rundu Magistrate’s Court today.
The two – Kandjeke Muhoka, 21, and Mathews Ihemba, 19 – were arrested by the Namibian Police Force (NamPol) on Tuesday at the Divayi village.
After being informed of their rights to engage legal representation of their choice, the suspects indicated that they will conduct their own defence.
Rundu Magistrate Victor Nyazo then postponed the case to 08 October this year for further police investigations.
The accused persons were remanded in custody until then.
After attacking the security guard, the perpetrators proceeded to break into the camp office, and stole money and other items worth N.dollars 7 000.
A group of four departmental directors of the Polytechnic of Namibia (PoN) today engaged some small and medium entrepreneurs (SMEs) here to learn about their business needs.
PoN Director of the Centre for Open and Lifelong Learning (COLL), Dr Delvaline Mowes, headed the PoN delegation, and said the purpose of the meeting was to hear and record their business training needs so that the Polytech could incorporate it into the institution’s courses.
She said such courses could then be offered on a full-time or distance-learning basis in order to enable citizens far away from Windhoek’s main campus to acquire new business skills.
She said the Polytechnic of Namibia, as a centre of excellence around the country, has the aim to address the education, training and skills’ gaps in the private and public sectors in this country.
