Namibia: 15-Year-Old Boy in Court for Raping Cousin

It is understood the two were alone when the incident happened and it was only after the guardian returned home that she noticed that the girl was not well.

Upon enquiry the girl revealed that she was raped by his cousin.

The boy was arrested the same day and he made his first appearance before magistrate Boyd Namushinga yesterday. He was released under the care of his guardian and the case was postponed to the 14th of January next year to allow room for further investigations.
