OMUTHIYA - A 34-year-old man succumbed to head injuries allegedly inflicted by his younger brother last Saturday following an altercation. 

The 22-year-old suspect, Tangeni Phillipus, a learner at Onguti Secondary School in Oshikoto Region was arrested and appeared in the Ondangwa Magistrate’s Court yesterday. He was denied bail.
