A 32-year-old Keetmanshoop teacher, who is accused of smashing her roommate's furniture in a fit of jealousy, on Monday made a brief appearance in the Keetmanshoop Magistrate Court on a charge of malicious damage to property.
Apollonia Apollus was not asked to plead, and her case was postponed until February 11 for further police investigation.
She remains free on bail of N$1 000.
It is alleged that Apollus damaged Mercy Mwashekele's two TV sets, a fridge, DVD player and a computer with a combined value of N$32 000 after accusing her of having a love affair with her boyfriend.
Both Mwashekele and Apollus teach at the local J.A. Nel High School, and shared a flat at the school hostel.
