Man in for raping step-daughter


by Linekela Halwoodi
Courts

Barnabas Karaerua is waiting for the Prosecutor-General’s decision on what court he will be trialled in for allegedly raping his stepdaughter in June last year.
Karaerua has been in police custody since his arrest on 30th June last year when the police picked him up for allegedly raping his mentally incapacitated step-daughter in Okuryangava.
In his defence, Karaerua told the court that the girl was in the North when the incident supposedly happened. He also said that the girl lives with his wife in Katutura while he lives in Otjimuise.
When he appeared in the Katutura Magistrate Court last week, his case was postponed to 17th of September this year awaiting the PG’s decision.
The seriousness of the case has made it difficult for his bail application to be approved and he is currently being held at Wanaheda Police Station.
