Rundu lawyer granted bail

A Rundu-based lawyer, Vernon Lutibezi, who applied for bail on an urgent basis in the Rundu Magistrate’s Court, after he was arrested for the alleged rape of his 13-year-old relative last week, was granted bail on Tuesday.
On Monday, before his bail application was heard, he appeared in the same court on an unrelated charge of malicious damage to property, for which he is already on bail.
Magistrate Hellen Olaiya who heard arguments until around 19h00 on Monday, granted Lutibezi bail of N$5 000 on Tuesday on condition that he would not communicate directly or indirectly with the complainant or the victim.
