Likius Shilongo stands accused of culpable homicide after he was allegedly involved in a motor-vehicle accident which resulted in the death of a pedestrian. 

The 21-year-old man was charged with one count of culpable homicide, and one count of failure to stop after an accident. Shilongo was arrested on 1 June last year after the motor-vehicle he was driving allegedly ran over Iumwe Tjaondja on the Otjomuise road. 

He did not stop after hitting the victim. Tjaondja succumbed to the injuries he sustained as a result of the accident. 

The case was postponed to 11 September this year, and a warrant of arrest issued for the suspect as he failed to make his court appearance.
