KEETMANSHOOP, 20 JUN (NAMPA) – A 34-year-old man who allegedly stabbed and killed another man here in February this year, made his third appearance in the Keetmanshoop Magistrate’s Court on Thursday.
Angula Immanuel Shaningilwe stands accused of stabbing 45-year-old Joseph Johannes in the neck at a cuca shop in the Extension 7 informal settlement on 13 February.
Shaningilwe appeared before Magistrate Olivia Van der Colff, who postponed his case to 11 July 2019 for further police investigations and for the accused to acquire legal representation through the Ministry of Justice’s legal aid department.
The accused during his first court appearance on 15 February indicated that he wished to apply for a legal aid lawyer.
During the hearing on Thursday, Van der Colff told Shaningilwe he must pay the N.dollars 350 requested by the legal aid department and he agreed.
During his first court appearance, Shaningilwe was denied bail because police investigations were at an early stage and because of fears he might abscond as he had allegedly also left the scene of the crime.
Bail was also denied because the granting of bail was not in the public interest and because of the seriousness of the offence.
The State was represented by Marlon Adams.
Shaningilwe was remanded in custody at the Keetmanshoop Police holding cells until his next court appearance.
