THE Commissioner for Refugees, Likius Valombola, made his first high court appearance for the murder of a student leader who he allegedly gunned down in a road rage incident last year.
A decision by the Prosecutor General to transfer Valombola’s murder and discharging of a firearm case to the high court was made two months ago.
He reportedly shot Helao Ndjaba twice in the head, which resulted in the student being in a coma for days before he succumbed to the injuries.
Making a brief appearance before Judge Christie Liebenberg for a case management, Valombola’s case was postponed to 19 September.
He is currently out on bail in the amount of N$15 000.
Meanwhile, the man who earlier this year killed his boss and injured another woman after he barged into the office building of his former employer also made his first appearance in the Windhoek high court this morning.
Simasiku Simataa, who previously had a private lawyer, Henry Shimutwikeni at the lower courts, informed Judge Liebenberg that he now wants the services of legal aid.
He also made clear his intentions for another formal bail application. He was previously denied bail on the grounds that he is a flight risk, due to the seriousness of the offense and fear that he might interfere with investigations. He returns to court on 19 September.
