Nine-year-old girl allegedly raped by a known suspect in Omusati

Staff Reporter

THE number of child victims of rape continues to rise.
The latest incident occurred in the Olupumbu village in the Elim Constituency of the Omusati Region where a nine-year-old girl was raped on Sunday.

According to the regional police commander, Commissioner Ismael Basson, the crime was only reported to the police on Wednesday by the victim’s 33-year-old father.

It is alleged that the crime was committed in the bush, but the police could not provide further details, saying only that the suspect is known and an order to arrest him was already issued.

Police statistics show that an average of three rapes are reported in Namibia per day and a significant number of the victims are minors.
