Ex burns house down

06 August 2019 | Crime

A man who was out on bail for allegedly raping his own daughter is alleged to have burned down his ex-girlfriend's house in Stampriet at the weekend.

According to the police the incident occurred on Sunday night when the man allegedly set the corrugated iron house on fire, which was completely destroyed, all with all his ex-girlfriend's possessions inside. No casualties were reported.

The suspect was out on bail after he allegedly raped their biological daughter, according to the police.

In another incident at Tses on Saturday, a 42-year-old woman was hit with an axe on her head by her 52-year-old boyfriend and sustained serious injuries.

She was taken to hospital, but did not want to open a case against him. However, due to the seriousness of the domestic violence matter, the state opened a case and the suspect was arrested by the police. In another incident, a nine-year-old boy died after he and a boy of the same age became embroiled in a fist fight after school at Eenghango village in the Ohangwena Region. According to the police, the fight occurred on 26 July when Tangeni-Omweni Haufiku was assaulted by the other boy.

It is alleged that the deceased was severely assaulted, which resulted in heavy bleeding from his nose.

He was taken to the Ongha clinic on 29 July for treatment. He, however, died this past Friday at his house. Haufiku was a grade 2 learner at Epoli Combined School.

Four suspects were arrested in Wanaheda this past weekend in connection of the murder of a 31-year-old man. The police did not specify when the murder occurred, but said the suspects are aged 23, 27, 29 and 30.

According to the police one suspect was also charged for defeating the ends of justice, after he hid and refused to hand over the panga used in the attack. The weapon was later recovered.

The victim, who was a resident of Rehoboth, was identified as Lorenzo Beukes. A 17-year-old girl was allegedly raped by a 27-year-old man, after attending a wedding ceremony. The incident occurred on Friday at Ashitata village in the Tsandi constituency. The man apparently grabbed the girl, who was on her way home from the wedding, and pulled her into the bushes, undressed and raped her. He has been arrested.

In another incident, an 11-year-old girl was allegedly raped by her 48-year-old uncle at the Etaneno village in the Onankali area.

The incident occurred on Friday when the girl arrived home from school while her parents were away. The girl entered her bedroom, and while she was busy removing her uniform, her uncle entered. He allegedly pulled her onto the bed and raped her.
