Katutura Central constituency councillor Ambrosius Kandjii was granted N$3 000 bail yesterday following his arrest over the weekend for alleged assault.
Kandjii, a former professional boxer, is accused of assaulting two people and pointing a gun at them.
According to police spokesperson, Deputy Commissioner Kauna Shikwambi, a case of malicious damage to property was opened against the Swapo councillor for allegedly damaging the vehicle of his first victim, a 26-year-old man.
An additional case of assault with the intention to do grievous bodily harm was opened after he allegedly punched a 31-year-old woman in the face and threatened to shoot her.
It is alleged that the woman asked the councillor about food distribution, which apparently resulted in the altercation.
Kandjii was represented by Ketuu Kaura from the Kangueehi and Kavendjii legal firm, while the State was represented by prosecutor Victoria Likius.
