Thomas Kampelo of Wanaheda has finally cleared his name as a woman-beater after the court acquitted him of common assault charges following his appearance in the Katutura Magistrate Court last week.
Kampelo was arrested in 2009 after a woman called the police claiming that he had assaulted her near the Wanaheda Police barracks in July that year.
The woman claimed that he had started beating her in the face with his fists while poking her in the face with his index finger. Kampelo was not arrested at the scene but taken to the police station where the woman gave her statement.
On 8 this month, his long wait for his name to be cleared was over when he was found not guilty and acquitted.
