The Namibian Police Force (NamPol) is investigating a case of rape after a 19-year-old girl living with Down syndrome was allegedly raped and impregnated at an unknown time by an unknown suspect in Havana informal settlement, Windhoek.

According to NamPol spokesperson, Deputy Commissioner Kauna Shikwambi, the matter only came to light after the victim started complaining about abdominal aches and was subsequently diagnosed with a 13-week pregnancy.

"The suspect is unknown at the moment; it is unknown when exactly the incident occurred, and the matter is receiving police attention thoroughly," Shikwambi said on Wednesday.
