OTJIWARONGO, 20 NOV (NAMPA) – A 27-year-old woman was arrested Sunday night in connection with the murder of her boyfriend, who she allegedly stabbed three times at Outjo the same night.
Spokesperson of the Namibian Police Force (NamPol) in the Otjozondjupa Region, Warrant Officer Maureen Mbeha on Monday told Nampa the deceased was identified as Kivi Katjirumbu.
His next of kin are informed of his death.
Katjirumbu was stabbed with an Okapi knife on the right side of his neck, left side of the chest and on the upper part of his left shoulder, allegedly by his girlfriend.
The incident happened at about 23h00 near a bar situated close to the deceased’s residence in Camp Five informal settlement.
The man died at his residence after he had walked a few metres from where the incident took place, said Mbeha.
It is suspected the couple had quarrelled before the stabbing incident, though the cause of the disagreement remains unknown to the police at this stage.
The suspect was arrested immediately after the incident and is expected to appear in the Outjo Magistrate’s Court this week.
Police investigations continue.
