Ohangwena man allegedly strangles girlfriend, commits suicide

The family of a 26-year-old resident of Ohadiwa yaKapombo Village in the Ohangwena Region, who is believed to have killed his girlfriend and later committed suicide, have urged men to seek psychological support when their relationships sour.
Police say preliminary investigations in both the murder and suicide are ongoing. It is alleged that the suspect strangled his girlfriend to death at a house in Ongha yesterday and called his family to inform them to go clean the room.
When the family arrived they made the gruesome discovery and alerted the police.
By then, the suspect had gone missing.
His body was retrieved by divers in an earth dam close to his home village this morning.
The two deceased have been identified as 24-year-old Lavinia Nekundi and 26-year-old Faustinus Shikondombolo.
Their next of kin have already been informed.
