31 year old murder suspect remanded in custody


The murder suspect in the death of Auguste Ndemupanda Jonas, 31-year-old Prostatius Kuuvilwa, has been remanded in custody.

Kuuvila, who is accused of murdering his 28-year-old ex-girlfriend, appeared in the Otjiwarongo Magistrate's Court on Wednesday.

Kuuvilwa allegedly stabbed Jonas nine times during a quarrel at her house at Telecom Informal Settlement over the weekend.

Relatives informed the nbc News team that Kuuvilwa and Jonas ended their relationship last month because of misunderstandings.
