18 September 2019 | Crime

A man was stabbed to death on a farm near Gobabis, after a fight erupted over a piece of meat.

The incident occurred shortly after midnight on Thursday at farm Ruimter in the Gobabis district.

The police said two men were fighting over a piece of meat given to them by their employer. The fight was stopped and both men went to their houses. However, the suspect later went back to Uaputara Maharukua's house. Another fight broke out and Maharukua was stabbed to death. He also sustained other injuries in the attack. In another incident, a 24-year-old Angolan woman narrowly escaped being raped when a 35-year-old man broke into her home at Iilagati village in Ondangwa, where she and her nine-month-old baby boy were sleeping. The suspect, who was armed with an axe, threatened to kill her and demanded that she have sex with him last Thursday. According to the police, the suspect broke into the bedroom by forcing the door open.

He found the woman and her baby on the bed. When she woke up and saw the suspect, he ordered her not to scream. He took out a pocketknife and pulled down his pants.

The owner of the house heard the screaming and came to ask what was wrong. The suspect took the woman's cellphone and ran away. The suspect's footprints were followed to his mother's house, where he was arrested. The axe, pocketknife and cellphone were also found.

On Sunday, the body of an unidentified man was found lying in a pool of blood in Telecom location at Otjiwarongo. The deceased was found with a stab wound to the chest.

In another incident over the weekend at Uis, a 54-year-old man was hit over the head with a stone and died. Philipus Gaweseb's body was discovered in front of the suspect's room by the owner of the house where they were staying. It is alleged that Gaweseb stabbed the suspect with a knife on the arm and leg during an argument.

The suspect then retaliated by hitting him continuously with a stone on the head. The suspect was arrested. A 23-year-old taxi driver was arrested at the Okahandja roadblock on Thursday for being in the possession of 3 730 grams of cannabis with a street of N$74 800.
