OTJIWARONGO, 30 MAR (NAMPA) - A 51-year-old man died after he was stabbed allegedly by his partner at the Ombili informal settlement in Otjiwarongo in the early hours of Wednesday.
Spokesperson of the Namibian Police Force (NamPol) in the Otjozondjupa Region, Warrant Officer Maureen Mbeha told Nampa on Thursday the deceased has been identified as Werner Noabeb.
“His relatives have been informed of his death,” she said.
Mbeha said the couple had lived together for nearly 10 years. The police were made to understand that they fought regularly.
It is alleged that Noabeb and the 50-year-old woman were on Tuesday seen at a bar in Ombili.
She said neighbours heard screaming shortly after 02h00 Wednesday morning.
Preliminary investigations by the police indicate that the woman had gone to a family member’s house in the same informal settlement, where she allegedly informed them that she stabbed Noabeb during a quarrel.
They then went to her house where they found Noabeb’s body, with a stab wound in his neck.
The woman’s family members alerted the police and she was arrested. She is expected to appear in the Otjiwarongo Magistrate’s Court on Friday.
Police investigations continue.
