Murder suspect in court

A 29-year-old murder suspect, Sackeus Ausiku appeared in the Windhoek Magistrate’s Court last week facing one count of murder.

Ausiku was arrested on 5 September 2014 after he allegedly shot and killed a man in Katutura, for which he pleaded not guilty on 30 March this year.

On 1 September 2014, the police responded to a crime scene in Katutura where Samuel Ndaumbwa lost his life to a wound sustained after a shooting.

Less than a week later, Ausiku was arrested and charged with murder for allegedly shooting Ndaumbwa in the chest with a firearm and causing his death.

When he appeared in court last week, Magistrate Alexis Diergaardt postponed the case to 1 March next year.

Ausiku remains in police custody, and the case has been postponed for the Prosecutor-general’s decision as well as a final remand.
