Man tells court itÔÇÖs right to slap somebody

Courts

Jacobus !Gaoseb of Katutura shocked the court when he said he did not know that it was wrong to slap his girlfriend.


!Gaoseb, who was arrested for slapping his girlfriend last year, appeared briefly in court last week where he was remanded for trial later in the year.


When !Gaoseb pleaded guilty mid last year, he told the court that he was not aware it was wrong or illegal to slap anyone in the face.


“I do not know that it is wrong to slap somebody. I was angry because of the bad words she had used against me,” he told the court.


He, however, told the court that he had learnt his lesson and he now knows that it is wrong to hit people.


!Gaoseb is currently out on N$500 bail and is expected to return to court on 21 August 2012.
