REHOBOTH, 06 FEB (NAMPA) – A man arrested after he allegedly raped an 11-year-old boy at Stampriet in the Hardap Region in October last year, made his third appearance in the Aranos Magistrate’s Court Wednesday.
The 28-year-old Elrico Howeka appeared before Magistrate Yvonne McLeod on a charge of rape and his case was postponed to 02 April for legal aid application and further investigations.
