Father nabbed for daughter’s rape

11 July 2018 | Crime


A Khorixas man who allegedly raped his 20-year-old biological daughter on Saturday was denied bail in the Khorixas Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday.
His name cannot be released to protect the victim.
He has been charged with rape and domestic violence and his case has been postponed to 16 August this year for further investigations and for him to apply for Legal Aid, the public prosecutor at Khorixas, Penda Hamunyela, told Nampa.
“The investigations will determine if there will be additional charges or not,” he added.
The accused fled the scene after the incident and handed himself over to the Khorixas police on Monday.
According to a crime report issued by the Namibian police, the victim arrived from Windhoek on Friday to visit her grandmother.
While she was sleeping, her father allegedly entered her room around 01:00 and started touching her before forcefully removing her underwear and raping her.
The victim alerted her grandmother, who reported the matter to the police.
