WINDHOEK, 10 JUL (NAMPA) – The trial of four men implicated in the death of Hiambepo ‘Major’ Kazeurua in January 2013, was on Wednesday postponed to May 2020 to allow one of the accused to acquire legal representation.
The four men made another appearance in the Windhoek High Court here on Wednesday, when their trial was postponed because one of the accused, Mathew Kakurarume (28) is now without legal representation following the withdrawal of his lawyer, Monty Kuruaihe, from the case earlier this year
Presiding High Court Judge, Alfred Siboleka, seriously warned Kakurarume to make sure he secures legal representation before or on 20 May 2020, as on that day, the case will proceed with or without him being legally represented.
The other three accused persons have state funded legal representation.
Wednesday’s postponement was done as per agreement reached by State advocate Dominic Lisulo and the three accused defence lawyers, Hipura Ujaha, Slysken Makando and Jan Wessels in court.
Two of the accused, Stockley 'Mbaruu' Kauejao (39) and Aphas Kamutjemo (30) are out on bail, while Muvare Kaporo (24) and Kakurarume are being held at the Windhoek Central Correctional Facility.
Kazeurua’s partly-burned body was found buried in an aardvark burrow on 07 January 2013 after he was reported missing a few days earlier.
