A 27-year-old man has been arrested and is waiting to appear in court for fatally stabbing his 26-year-old brother, Shefanya Dominika Tiliindje, at the Omulondo location of the Enongo village on Monday.
Omusati Regional Commander, Commissioner Titus Shikongo said the incident occurred around 19:00 following a physical fight.
“It is alleged that the two brothers, who live in the same house, were socializing when an argument erupted between them and later resulted in a physical fight,” he said.
Shikongo added that it is still not clear what prompted the argument.
According to Shikongo, the suspect, who is currently struggling with mental health issues and is undergoing psychiatric treatment, drew an okapi knife and stabbed his younger brother four times – twice in the back, once in the abdomen and once in the chest.
The victim died on the spot.
The body of the deceased has been transported to the Okahao police mortuary pending a postmortem.
