ONGWEDIVA, 05 MAR (NAMPA) – A 33-year-old woman was allegedly stabbed to death at the Oluteyi village of the Omusati Region’s Ogongo Constituency on Wednesday evening.
Sergeant Hesekiel Hamalwa of the Namibian Police Force (NamPol)’s Public Relations Unit in the region confirmed the murder to Nampa on Thursday.
He named the deceased as Anna-Lisa Tuunane Ndakongele. She was stabbed more than 20 times over her body and died on the spot.
Her boyfriend, 31-year-old Sakeus Mateus, is currently admitted to the Oshakati Intermediate Hospital in the Intensive care Unit (ICU) in a serious condition.
Mateus’s throat was slit. He told the Police at Okahao that somebody attacked him and his girlfriend that night.
Hamalwa pointed out that Mateus was brought to the Okahao NamPol station at about 01h00 on Thursday morning by members of the public after he reportedly approached them for help.
However, he said Mateus remains the suspect in the killing of Ndakongele until such a time it is proven beyond reasonable doubt that somebody else has indeed attacked the two.
The deceased lived with her two children, aged 15 and three years, in the house where the killing took place.
She is from the Oluvango village of the Anamulenge Constituency also in the Omusati Region, but was employed as a domestic worker at Oluteyi.
Her 15-year-old daughter and neighbours found her dead in a pool of blood inside her bedroom on Thursday morning.
The girl told Police that her mother’s boyfriend was visiting and enjoyed a drink together before a quarrel started between the two of them that Wednesday evening.
Police investigations continue.
