Stowaway in custody


by Linekela Halwoodi
Courts

 

An Angolan man, who was found to be residing in Namibia without proper documentation, is still in police custody and appeared in the Katutura Magistrate Court last week.
Nghilifavali Shipito, 23, was arrested in December last year in Windhoek when the police asked him for his documents and he failed to provide them.
He was charged with residing in Namibia without any valid documentation or authorisation.
When he appeared in court this year, he told the court that he knew it was wrong to be in the country without his documents, “I came into the country without papers. I came in June 2011.”
When he appeared in court this week, his case was postponed for trial on 17th August this year.
