Jonathan Cooper (48) appeared in the Katutura Magistrate’s Court on charges of murder and arson last week. Cooper, a Dolam resident, is facing case 785/11/2013 for the murder of Clerence Aochamub. On 24 November 2013, Cooper was at J.M Entertainment Bar in Windhoek, where he allegedly ended up killing Aochamub. Court documents do, however, not describe the events which led to the killing of Aochamub about three years ago. On that same day, Cooper then set fire to the same establishment where the murder happened. He was thus charged with arson for maliciously setting fire to J.M Entertainment Bar, the property of Julia Mweshihange. The case has been postponed to 15 April 2016 for the Prosecutor-General’s decision. Cooper who is out on a warning, has been told to appear in court on the scheduled date, or else he will risk having a warrant of arrest issued against him.
