Man turns on a relative


by Linekela Halwoodi
Courts

 

 

The Katutura Magistrate Court last week saw the first appearance of a man who tried to kill his relative.
Lukas Haimbanga stole a pistol from a relative in whose home he stayed in Havana, turned it on him and almost shot him dead after a disagreement. The cause of the disagreement between Haimbanga and Absai Shoongo is not clear, according to the police reports but Shoongo dodged a bullet on the 6th of this month from his own gun. After Haimbanga allegedly stole Shoongo’s pistol and cell phone, police reports states that he fired one shot in Shoongo’s direction, who was lucky to get out of the way.
Haimbanga is now facing charges of theft, pointing of a firearm, attempted murder and negligent discharge of a firearm.
Despite the seriousness of the case, Haimbanga was released on warning when he made his first appearance in court last week. He is expected to return to court on the 9th of August this year
