WALVIS BAY - The murder case of Azaan Madisia and her brother Junior Mulundu has been stalled once again, as the duo still do not have a legal representative. The duo, accused of murdering Shannon Wasserfall, made yet another appearance in the Walvis Bay Magistrate’s Court; however, the case was postponed.
Public prosecutor Annakleta Kandjimi during their scheduled appearance yesterday told the court they are still waiting for a legal representative to be allocated to the accused.
“Thus, we would like the case to be postponed to 11 October,” she said. Azaan and Mulundu, who have been in police custody since last year, are accused of murdering Wasserfall before burying her in a shallow grave at the town.
Wasserfall was missing for almost six months last year. They were initially represented by lawyer Gilroy Kasper, who had been a no show at court during their last three court appearances, resulting in them applying for legal aid.
Earlier police reports indicated Wasserfall was on 10 April allegedly reported missing by Madisia, who was her close friend. The discovery of her remains, however, led to Madisia’s arrest after police could positively place her at the murder scene.
Mulundu was arrested after he handed himself over to the police on 7 November last year and he allegedly admitted to assisting his sister in disposing of Wasserfall’s remains. Meanwhile, Madisia faces two additional counts of insurance fraud that are linked to her main charges – murder and defeating the course of justice.
The fraud involves a laptop and an iPhone, which she sold and later claimed from insurance after reporting it as stolen. The items allegedly contain evidence that links her to the alleged murder.
