NAMIBIA: ABUSE/NBC/13/6/18 SABANews 1
KEETMANSHOOP – Police in the KEETMANSHOOP Town of Southern NAMIBIA have arrested a female teacher for allegedly abducting and abusing a small girl.
The authorities claim the woman (age not given) kidnapped the 15-year-old kid and took her to her home, where NBC News says immoral acts were committed.
It quotes //KHARAS Police Crime Investigations Unit Co-ordinator CHRISPIN MUBEBO as saying the girl went missing from family home and relatives got information she was at the house of the suspect.
Deputy Commissioner MUBEBO says the police secured a search warrant and found the child hidden in a wardrobe in the house of the teacher, who is scheduled to appear in court tomorrow (THURSADY).
In a separate development, FOUR suspects in the murder of TITUS KALUVI over the weekend at the ANGLICAN Church at the northern village of ODIBO, have appeared for the FIRST time before the OHANGWENA Magistrate’s Court.
NBC News says Magistrate LETTA SIMON has remanded the 21-year-old MATIAS NAKALE; PETRUS WEYULU MWEENDOBE, 21, and TWO minor boys, both aged 17, in custody.
They will remain locked up until the 21ST of this month to allow further investigations and for them to apply for a State-sponsored defence lawyer.
The Court decision comes after State Prosecutor SAKARIA MUPUMA asked pleaded against the granting of bail at this stage, in order to prevent them from interfering with investigations; and they may run away since they live near the border.
Their home, ODIBO Village, is in the OSHIKANGO Electoral Constituency in Northern NAMIBIA, and close to the border with ANGOLA,
Warrant Officer KAUME IITUMBA of the Police Public Relations Unit has told the media the FOUR suspects killed attacked the 28-year-old KALUVI during a church meeting; after the late man had requested them to remove hats in church.
Meanwhile, research shows NAMIBIA has had at least ONE serial killings event, between 2005 and 2007 when the B-ONE BUTCHER killed and dismembered FIVE women whose body parts he or she deposited along the National Road B-ONE.
The authorities never succeeded to determine conclusively the identity of the up to now, although there has not been any similar report so far either.
On the other hand, NAMIBIA has reportedly always had a high rate of domestic violence, mainly against women and children – who frequently suffer at the hands of rapists and brutal murderers.
Security commentators say the new trend like where the female teacher allegedly kidnapped and abused a little girl and the FOUR men are accused of killing another man in church calls for NAMIBIA to give more attention to violence./Sabanews/cam
