A three-year-old girl was allegedly killed by her father this past weekend, before he committed suicide.

According to the police, Christa Nawises's parents were drinking at Kuvukiland location on Friday afternoon when her father, Quinton Puti Nawiseb, decided to go home and took the child with him.

After some time her mother went home, but they were not there.

Their bodies were discovered by children who were walking in the area and the matter was reported to the police.

The girl was found with an open wound to the back of her head, while her father was hanging from a tree. The motive is unknown and the police are still investigating the matter.

In a separate incident on Friday at Uudhiya village near Omuthiya, a four-year-old girl was allegedly raped and sodomised by an 18-year-old boy. According to the police, the girl was asleep in her grandmother's house, who had gone to fetch firewood. The suspect, who is the grandmother's neighbour, allegedly entered the room and sodomised the girl. The suspect was arrested.

In another incident on Friday at Onamulunga village in the Oniipa area, a 40-year-old woman was allegedly raped by her 36-year-old boyfriend.

According to the police, the woman was raped while she was visiting the suspect in his room. The man has been arrested.

In another incident at Iikango village, also in the Oniipa area, 24-year-old Herman Gideon was stabbed to death, allegedly by his stepfather, after Gideon told him to stop beating his mother.

According to the police, Gideon was stabbed in the chest with a knife during an argument with his stepfather and he died at the scene.

Gideon had tried to intervene on his mother's behalf, which allegedly angered the 36-year-old suspect, who has been arrested.

In a separate incident in Wanaheda, Windhoek, a 41-year-old woman was arrested after allegedly illegally aborting her baby in October.

The infant's body was discovered on Sunday behind the room where the woman lives. The incident was reported by her neighbours, who knew that the woman was about six months pregnant.

The neighbours realised the woman was no longer pregnant and called the police. The woman was taken to hospital, but refused to be examined by a doctor. She was then arrested. In a separate incident at Keetmanshoop, a 28-year-old woman died on the way to hospital after she was stabbed with an unknown object.

The incident occurred on Saturday at Hainguba Shebeen in Tseiblaagte. Engeline Rooi was stabbed by a 22-year-old suspect and was rushed to hospital, but died on the way there. The suspect fled and is still on the run.

An 18-year-old boy was stabbed to death on Friday at Goreangab Dam location in Wanaheda.

According to the police, he was stabbed in the chest with a kitchen knife during an argument, allegedly by a 43-year-old woman. The suspect was arrested.
