KENYA KAMBOWE

A 19-year-old man from Angola was arrested on Friday in Oshikoto Region on a charge of raping a two-year-old boy.

According to Deputy Commissioner Naomi Katjiua the incident took place last Tuesday at Onashikuvu village near Omuthiya, where the suspect was employed as a cattle herder. Katjiua said the case was only opened on Friday.

In another rape case in the Oshikoto Region, the police are searching for a 20-year-old man from Iihandhi village who allegedly sodomised two girls aged 13 and five.

According to Katjiua the suspect is the uncle of the girls and lived in the same house.

The incident took place on Sunday, 19 February when their guardian went to church, but a case of rape was only opened last week Wednesday. The police are asking the community’s assistance in tracing the suspect.
