An elderly man from Katutura was warned by court to stay away from his niece, Portia after he brutally beat her after a night out, a fortnight ago.
Michael Kondombolo allegedly went to his niece’s house on 12 November this year and beat her to a pulp for reasons unknown and before he left he made sure he had poisoned those who tried to intervene with foul language.
Kondombolo who would not stop hitting the woman with his fists came into soberness when he was handcuffed and taken to the holding cells in Katutura.
He was charged with assault with aggravating charges and crimen injuria for throwing his tongue wildly.
The woman who was injured did not want his uncle in custody as she did not object to his bail but she said the court should restrict him from coming near her.
“He is my uncle but when he is drunk I fear for my life. He must also not send people to me,” she told the court.
Kondombolo was granted a N$400 bail and was free to go as soon as he paid also on conditions that he does not go to his niece’s work place and returns to court on 17 January 2012.
