RUNDU: The Namibian Police Force (NamPol) in the Kavango Region yesterday arrested a 52-year-old man after he allegedly murdered a woman at the Satotwa village earlier in the day.
Satotwa village is situated some 100 kilometres south of Rundu.
NamPol’s Kavango Regional Crime Investigations’ Coordinator, Deputy Commissioner Willie Bampton told Nampa today that the suspect allegedly beat the deceased with a stick on the left side of her neck several times, causing her to die on the spot.
Bampton said although no open wounds were inflicted, bruises were observed on the deceased’s body.
The motive behind the alleged killing has not yet been established by the police as investigations are still underway.
The suspect, whose name is known but cannot be revealed, is expected to appear in the Rundu Magistrate’s Court tomorrow.
(DIVUNDU) – Learners at the Divundu Combined School are demanding that their dilapidated girls hostel block be renovated as a matter of urgency as its current state puts their health at risk.
In addition to its rundown state, another complaint is that bathrooms at the hostel block do not have toilets, forcing the girls staying there to go to a different block when nature calls.
To make matters worse, the existing toilets do not have any doors.
The school is situated at Divundu, some 200 kilometres east of Rundu.
The learners, along with their parents, yesterday held a demonstration on the school premises, and were planning to hand over a petition to Mukwe Constituency Councillor Christian Muriki, who they were expecting to come to the school.
The Mukwe Councillor, however, could not accept the petition as he was apparently not informed about the planned demonstration in advance.
