A   33 year-old domestic worker, Ambamba Nakale, appeared in Outapi Magistrate Court for allegedly raping a 8 year-old at Oipanda-Yambalantu Village in the Ogongo Constituency.
According to Omusati Region public relations officer, Warrant Lineekela Shikongo, Nakale found the suspect playing with other children in the yard, when he snatched her.
“The kids know him as he is a domestic worker from the neighbourhood and when he found them playing in the yard, he just grabbed her and took her behind the house and raped her,” said Warrant Shikongo.
Nakale was arrested the next day after the minor had informed elders about her ordeal and he appeared last week in court.
“The case was remanded to the 2nd of April and he was not given bail,” he said.  In a similar incident in Ondangwa, police arrested a 40-year-old for allegedly raping a 15 year-old girl from Oshaakondwa Location of Onguta Village.
According to police reports, the suspect who is a neighbour to the victim, invited her behind a cuca shop and had sexual intercourse with her against her will.
The matter was only reported to the police three days later after the teenager confided in a friend who is the same age as her.
The suspect was requested by the victim’s parents to go to the police station where he was arrested after interrogations.
During interrogations police discovered that it was not the first time that the suspect had unlawful forced a sexual encounter with the teenager, as he also allegedly raped her in December last year.
The police report said moments after raping the teen in December, the suspect bribed the her with N$ 50 so that she could not tell anybody.
He was thus charged with rape (CR 79/02/2015) and made a brief court appearance last week but was not granted bail.
