Teen burns down house

A 17-year-old teen appeared in the Windhoek Magistrate’s Court last week on charges of arson. The teenager, who lives in Omboma Street, was arrested on 6 November after he allegedly burned down the house where he lived in Freedomland.

According to court documents, the boy had earlier this month set Monia Philander’s house on fire in Freedomland, destroying the property there. Court documents indicate that the teen has been charged under the Domestic Violence Act 4 of 2003.

However, it’s not explained what the relationship between the teen and the owner of the property is. When he made an appearance before Magistrate Beverly Ilge Rheent and Prosecutor Maria Andimba, he was released into the custody of his guardian Rosalia Adams, who also resides on Omboma Street in Freedomland.

The case has been postponed to tomorrow.
