OTJIWARONGO, 06 MAR (NAMPA) – A 59-year-old Okondjatu man is expected to appear in the Okakarara Magistrate’s Court Thursday morning on charges of incest and/or rape of his 14-year-old biological daughter.
Spokesperson of the Namibian Police Force (NamPol) in the Otjozondjupa Region, Inspector Maureen Mbeha on Wednesday told Nampa in an interview that the alleged rape took place in the early hours of Monday morning at the man’s house where he resides with the victim.
“The girl’s mother is deceased, and the girl reported the incident to her class teacher at school. The teacher alerted some family members of the girl and the police,” said Mbeha.
The suspected perpetrator was then questioned by the police and later arrested on Tuesday after a case of rape was opened against him.
Police investigations in the matter continue.
