Breadcrumb

Rape and incest-accused former Parliamentarian Steve Biko Booys, whose bail application was denied four times at the lower courts, has turned to the Windhoek High Court with hopes of regaining his freedom.

The High Court will deliver its judgement on Booys' plea for freedom on Friday.

The former Okahandja regional councillor has been in custody since his arrest in 2021.

Biko Booys was an outspoken regional councillor, and he became a member of parliament on the ticket of the Swapo party, with a seat in the upper house.
