Boy-Girl panga saga back in court


by Linekela Halwoodi
Courts

 

Two years ago, Lazarus Dhimbulukeni went to his girlfriend’s house in Katutura and almost chopped her to death.
Dhimbulukeni was taken into police custody the following day and was granted a N$1000 bail after spending about a year in police cells.
 The alleged crime occurred on 17 November 2009 where the accused   hid a panga in his pants during his visit to his then girlfriend. He did not waste time arguing with the woman, according to records. He had only been in the house for a while when the altercation almost became deadly.
She sustained injuries on the head, wrists and arms while trying to shield herself from the striking panga during the attack. She was admitted in hospital where she stayed for about three weeks after receiving several stitches.
He pleaded not guilty to the charges of attempted murder early this year. However, he made an appearance in the Katutura Regional Court this week where his trial continues. He will be returning to court on 29 June this year.
