Namibian 6-year-old witnesses dad being stabbed to death over N$50

04 April 2016, 17:49

Windhoek - A Windhoek family has been torn apart following the gruesome murder of a relative over N$50, allegedly at the hands of his girlfriend.

According to The Namibian, the deceased, identified as Mubu Starllen Maloboka, died on the spot after his live-in girlfriend allegedly stabbed him to death in front of their 6-year-old daughter.

The couple, said to have been dating for 12 years, were alleged to have argued over the small change from N$50 before the incident took place.

The woman was reported to have told their neighbours of her boyfriend's death shortly after he was killed.

"The whole incident shocked us. I do not feel good at all. He was ever-smiling. If he was sick, then one would understand. It all happened too fast," said the deceased's brother, Patrick.

The woman is set to appear in court on Monday.

Domestic violence has increased in the southern African country in recent years, with Sister Namibia reporting that one in three women was likely to have experienced domestic-related violence within their lifetime.

Furthermore, it has been estimated that one out of five women are in an abusive relationships.

Men have been reported as the biggest perpetrators of domestic violence, with 86% of domestic violence victims being women and 93% of the crimes being perpetrated by men.
