A four-year-old girl was allegedly murdered on Friday in the Onesi constituency by her mother.

It is alleged that the mother is mentally challenged and was in the house with the deceased and two other minors, aged eight and 10.

The incident happened at the Omanenepeke village on Friday afternoon. According to the police, the 29-year-old woman allegedly called the deceased, identified as Emila Josef Ndiweni, to her bedroom to do her hair. When the girl entered the room, however, she was attacked and strangled to death with a scarf.

The mother has been arrested.



Minor raped, impregnated

In another incident, a 26-year-old man was arrested on Saturday for repeatedly raping and impregnating a 13-year-old girl in the Ndiyona constituency in the Kavango Region. The girl was allegedly raped on several occasions between last August and January in the Kashira village. Her 47-year-old mother alerted the police and the man was arrested.

At Tses, a 15-year-old girl was gangraped by two suspects, whose ages were not given, on Saturday.

According to the police, the incident happened at an unoccupied house at the Gainachas village in the Tses district.

It is alleged that the girl was at a party at the house with a friend. The two suspects called her over, but she refused. They then grabbed her and forcefully dragged her into a riverbed where they overpowered her, tied her arms, gagged her and raped her.

The suspects have been arrested. The girl was taken to the Keetmanshoop State Hospital for medical examination.



Fake Covid results

In a separate incident, two Zimbabwean nationals were arrested on Saturday in Katima Mulilo for being in the possession of fake coronavirus laboratory test reports.

According to the crime report issued yesterday, the men were charged for contravening the Public and Environmental Health Act and the Immigration Control Act.

They apparently operate a print shop in Katima Mulilo and were found with fake coronavirus laboratory tests results for the PathCare Namibia.

The men are suspected to be supplying people with fake test results for travelling purposes.

It was also discovered that the suspects, aged 28 and 45, have been operating in Namibia without valid work permits.
