Seven males appeared before Magistrate Sarel Egmond Jacobs in the Katutura Regional Court on a charge of murder.
The group, two of whom were as young as 15-years-old when they were initially arrested, are said to have acted with the common goal of killing Paulus Mwahulikange.
Clerence Garoeb, Harodt Skrywer, Reinhardt Nababeb, Benson George, Magnus Eiseb, Steven Hoebeb and Jonathan Doeseb are said to all have taken part in the murder on 30 October 2009.
It is alleged that the seven assaulted their victim before stabbing him with a knife.
Mwahulikange succumbed to his injuries.
It remains unclear exactly who among the accused fatally stabbed the victim, as each of the accused thinks it’s the other. Witnesses also have conflicting accounts as to who exactly stabbed the victim.
The partially-heard trial has now been postponed, and will run from 4-8 April 2016.
