Komeya allegedly went to tell his partner’s sister about the shooting before going back to their home where he shot at the body twice.He also allegedly attempted to shoot the child but failed when the girl escaped.
“Are you also going to shoot me?” Asked the sister of the deceased when she saw Komeya approaching her holding a gun in his hand.Komeya allegedly told the sister that he was tired of Tumonotyombi and therefore he had shot her.He is now facing three charges of murder, attempted murder and pointing a fire-arm at a person.When he briefly appeared at the Katutura Magistrate Court, he was told that his case had been remanded to 1 November 2011 for further investigations.
When the State objected to his bail, Komeya said, “I got nothing to say.”
