Woman in court over baby's drowning

06 January 2017 | Crime

A woman appeared before the Outapi Magistrate's Court on Tuesday, accused of murdering her three-year-old cousin on New Year's Eve at Omundjalala village in the Omusati Region.

A police spokesperson, Sergeant Anna Kunga, said Albertina Nkoshi (27) was denied bail and the case was postponed to 23 February.

According to Kunga, Nkoshi was arrested on 1 January at Omundjalala village in connection with the death of Angula Kahima, who drowned in a water-filled container on 31 December.

According to the police the toddler had been forced into the container.

Kunga said Nkoshi was placed in charge of the family's children when their parents went away for a day.

“It is suspected that she forced the boy into this water-filled container and sealed it for hours. We are still investigating what prompted this evil act. She was remanded in police custody until her next appearance,” said Kunga.
