Katutura resident Josua Jesaya appeared before Magistrate Conchita Olivier in the Windhoek Magistrate’s Court last week for three attempted murder charges dating back to 2013.
According to the court documents, on 1 January 2013, Jesaya allegedly assaulted his then-lover by beating her with his fists and then headbutting her after she refused to have sex with him because she was not feeling well.
The assault did not end there because later that month, Jesaya was arrested for attempting to kill his lover and two other people with a gun. He allegedly shot his lover in the right arm with a pistol while in Greenwell Matongo. He then shot a man, identified as Hamukushi, in the right leg. He also did not stop there as he went on to shoot another man, identified as Amupolo, in the chest.
The accused was then arrested and charged with three attempted murder counts. He is scheduled to appear in court again in March next year for plea and trial.
