A rape case in which a tenant was accused of raping a teenager was dismissed in Oshakati last week due to insufficient evidence.
Ephraim Ndapuka walked free after almost three months in police custody.
According to a police source at Oshakati, his tenants claimed that he had slept with their 16 year-old daughter and this led to his immediate arrest.
According to the source, Ndapuka said the teenager would visit him in his room to watch movies but he never laid a hand on her.
The evidence was appalling and as a result Ndapuka was let go and case dismissed.
Gay basher skips town
Otjomuise resident Eric Snyman has fled Windhoek after being reported for assaulting an unnamed gay at a bar.
The argument started over a cigarette Snyman was smoking and the gay complained resulting in a physical fight.
During the fight, the gay sustained injuries to the face and was rushed to the hospital.
When members of city police were called to the scene, Snyman was nowhere to be found.
The gay later laid charges of assault at Wanaheda Police Station.
It is believed that Snyman is back in his home town of Rehoboth.
