The N$74 million lawsuits against government, lodged by the president of Namibia Transport and Taxi Union (NTTU), Werner Januarie, will only be heard next year. Anti-Corruption Commission of Namibia director general Paulus Noa believes corruption has been legalised in Namibia, making the work of the anti-graft agency difficult. ǀHôakao!narib Ôa!nâ!nans ge ǀgui timî tsîs ge 2006ǁî kurib !nâ ǁîs daode a ǀhui-amsa xu nēsis kōse 694 ǁhōn hîa ǁama!khunis ǀkha hâ ǀhôakao!naris ǀkha !gaeǁaresa ūhâna beros ǂhanusi ǂnûǁkhaeba-aos dis ǁga ǁnâu!gâsa ǁgui-ais !aroma ge sî!kharu. An attempt by northern businessman Sindano Hango to be released on bail pending his sentencing was shattered yesterday when the court denied his request. A 26-year-old woman, who was arrested on Monday for allegedly killing her newborn, slitting her stomach and removing the bowels, is scheduled to make her first court appearance today in Katutura Magistrate’s Court. Police chief Sebastian Ndeitunga has asked the public to take precautionary measures to ensure their safety and that their properties during the festive season are guaranteed. The State has made an application to have a 26-year-old woman, accused of killing her newborn, including slitting her stomach and removing the bowels, submitted for psychological evaluation. Commentators believe Fishrot accused Ricardo Gustavo and his legal team proved on a balance of probabilities that he was a good candidate for bail. The police have concluded their investigations into the case of Denis Noa, a medical intern, who is accused of sexually violating an incapacitated patient at Katutura Intermediate Hospital in April. Former unit commander of the Namibian Police Drug Law Enforcement Unit Freddy Basson was found not guilty and acquitted on drug theft charges in the Windhoek Magistrate’s Court this week. The Namibian police are still investigating the case of a mother, accused of having killed her two minor children and attempted to kill the third one in Ethiopia in December 2020. A group of businessmen who are accused of defrauding the Ministry of Finance of N$3.5 billion in revenue, await to hear their fate from the prosecutor general. The State has asked the court to dismiss an appeal against the conviction and 20-year sentence of an Okahandja resident for killing his love rival. The tussle over a piece of land between Puma Energy Namibia Two and the Namibia Bus and Taxi Association (Nabta) on which they have been operating on for years is far from over as the later claims his rights to the land have never been challenged. A grieving father of one of the five people who died in a horrific car accident near Kongola, Zambezi region last week, has approached the High Court to fight against his daughter being buried in a mass grave. The High Court is set to deliver its ruling today in the case of the Namibia Tourism Board (NTB), as it fights to recover more than N$23 million paid to organisers of the Kora All-Africa Music Awards in 2015. The High Court dismissed the urgent application of a father who was seeking an order to stop his daughter from being buried alongside four other victims of a car crash that occurred near Kongola, Zambezi region last week. The Kunene Regional Council might have paid its workers their December salaries last week, but the High Court observed on Wednesday that the suit against it filed by the Namibia Public Workers Union is not yet finalised. The much-anticipated judgment in the case of Namibia Tourism Board (NTB) against the organisers of the Kora All-Africa Music Awards was once again postponed on Friday. A suspected burglar allegedly involved in a series of robberies at the Wernhil shopping mall, was arrested after he is said to have robbed sales staff in Big Daddy at gunpoint last week.
