Cop charged for bribery

 

 

A Windhoek law enforcer is experiencing life on the other side of the fence after she was charged with accepting gratification in 2010.
Teopolina Hofeni, 43, who worked for the Namibian Police Force at the time of her arrest, allegedly accepted a N$900-bribe from a certain Sakeus Nambala and promised to withdraw his rape case, which was pending before court.
The transaction allegedly took place on 20 March 2008 in Windhoek but Hofeni was soon discovered and summoned.
She is currently facing charges of accepting gratification by an agent as inducement. She briefly appeared in the Katutura Magistrate Court this week only to be told that her case had been postponed to 15 February next year.
