This news article appeared on THE NAMBIAN newspapers website today (May 07, 2009) . This is yet another addition to “only in Africa.” Any other country (not Africa) in the world would have this “thing” committed to an asylum. But not in Africa. Therefore I deduce that these are the actions of a “by African standards” of a normal human being. Be rest assured, this man is allowed to vote. For the benefit of the "white bad, black right" brigade, I will continue to scour African tabloids to bring you the best of Africanism. Not enough said yet!
A MAN accused of raping his great-grandmother and a goat appeared in the Oshakati Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday.
It is alleged that in the early hours of Friday, Stefanus Fillemon (30), from Eefadoukadona near Ongwediva in the Oshana Region, stabbed and sexually assaulted his great-grandmother, said to be well over 90 years old, at her homestead after attending a wedding reception.
Fillemon faces charges of rape and assault with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.
The old woman’s 10-year-old great-granddaughter was present during the incident.
Fillemon allegedly stabbed his elderly relative in the arm with a knife after she started crying and screaming while he raped her.
The old woman’s screams caused Stefanus Fillemon to flee and brought neighbours and relatives rushing to the house.
They reported the incident to the Police and took the elderly woman to Oshakati State Hospital.
Witnesses told Police that Fillemon had been caught having sex with a goat at the village a few days earlier.
Fillemon reportedly used a condom when having sex with the goat, but not when raping his great grandmother.
“This kind of evil and violence will bring us nowhere and I think the youth have to be taught culture, norms and values in order to stop doing such bad things and unwanted practices in society,” Oshana Police Public Relations Officer, Sergeant Christina Fonsecka, told The Namibian yesterday.
He was not asked to plead and the case has been referred for further Police investigation
