WINDHOEK, 01 OCT (NAMPA) - The man who allegedly killed his ex-girlfriend and her sister before committing suicide in the Ohangwena Region last month, was buried along with the siblings at the Oshaango cemetery on Saturday.
Samuel Enghono allegedly attacked his ex-girlfriend, 23-year-old Ndamononghenda Tateoshoati Nafuka and Martha Nafuka, 32, with a panga at Ehenge village on 20 September. He then hanged himself, according to police information.
A senior family member of the siblings, Joseph Nekaya, told Nampa on Tuesday the two families agreed to jointly hold the memorial and burial services for the three deceased at the Oshaango Lutheran cemetery.
“We sat together as families in order to give the three deceased a decent funeral since we felt there was nobody to blame, as all three are no more,” Nekaya said.
He however said losing two people at once was a great loss for his family.
“It is a great loss, especially for the bereaved mother of the two women because they were the only ones helping at home including with cooking, preparing the mahangu field and taking care of her,” he said.
Enghono and Ndamononghenda had two children, who have now been left in the care of their grandmother.
Nekaya further said the family of Enghono are also in a difficult situation as they are mourning the death of a man who killed two people and subsequently committed suicide.
He however said he feels the two families should be commended for how they handled the situation during such a trying time.
