REHOBOTH, 11 FEB (NAMPA) – The case of four men accused of attempted murder after allegedly assaulting and stabbing a man in Rehoboth last year, saw another postponement after two of the accused did not make appear before court on Monday.

Wilfred Africa, Daniel Mouton, Nelson Dausab and Debra Kondo were set to appear before Kandinawapa Nangombe at the Rehoboth Magistrate’s Court on a charge of attempted murder and the case was on the roll for plea and trial, but Africa and Mouton failed to appear and a warrant of arrest was thereafter issued.
The case was then postponed to 25 February for the two to be traced and arrested, while Dausab and Kondo were warned to appear in court.

The four accused were represented by State-funded lawyer Winnie Christiaans, who informed the court that Mouton called and informed him they were on their way to the north, however, Christiaans said he has no objection in a warrant of arrest issued against his two clients.

It is alleged that they assaulted a man with planks and stabbed him with a knife in Rehoboth’s Block G residential area on 16 April 2018.

The victim sustained serious injuries and was rushed to the Windhoek Central Hospital for treatment, but has since recovered.

Public Prosecutor, Victor Mutumbulwa appeared for the State in the matter.

The accused are out on bail of N.dollars 1 500 each, with Africa and Mouton’s bail withdrawn provisionally and the bail money forfeited to the State until their arrest, while Dausab and Kondo’s bail was extended until their next court appearance.
