LORENZO Aludhilu, 35, who is being accused of having raped an 8-year-old girl, was denied bail when he made a brief court appearance in the Oshakati Magistrate’s Court this week.
Aludhilu was contracted to transport the girl to and from school on a daily basis.
It is alleged that he raped her on the 6th and again on the 7th of March.
The case was postponed to 26 June.
Oshana Police Regional Commander, Naftal Lungameni Sakaria, said that the accused stopped at different places and raped the victim inside the vehicle.
The crime was uncovered only when the victim’s mother noticed that the child was walking with difficulty.
She inquired and the child revealed what happened.
