Lungamene Nghidipo, who was 22 years old at the time of the incident, has been charged with attempted murder read with the provisions of the Domestic Violence Act of 2003. Court documents show that on the 23rd of December 2014 in the Okuryangava area in the Windhoek district, the accused assaulted Taati Nghidipo by stabbing her with a knife several times.
Court documents further show that while addressing the court, the accused stated he was acting in self-defence claiming that his mother made him weak through witchcraft. The complainant testified that she feared for her life if the defendant was granted bail as he had been verbally abusive and threatened to kill her over a long period of time.  
The accused is currently out on bail of N$3000 and is due back in court on the 14th of November 2016 for a plea and trial hearing.
