CAROLINE Nkata, one of the three Zimbabwean nationals implicated in the murder of a nine-year-old girl over the weekend, this morning indicated that she intends to enter a guilty plea on charges of murder read with the provisions of the domestic violence act, defeating the course of justice and the violation of a dead body.

During her brief appearance at the Windhoek Magistrate’s Court alongside her co-accused, Rachel Kureva, the mother of the young murder victim, Caroline informed the court that she will conduct her own defence once the murder trial gets underway.

In her impromptu plea explanation, Carol also identified her husband and the third accused in the matter, Edward Nkata, as the mastermind behind the murder, informing the court that he was the one who beat the young girl to death.

The trio are accused of murdering Natalie Chipomho over the weekend in Windhoek and disposing of her smoldering remains in a dustbin. Edward did not appear in court this morning as he is still in hospital after a motor vehicle accident on Sunday.

“I did not beat the child. My husband forced me to go with him when he was disposing of the body. He beat the child, but I was present when he did it. When she died, he forced me to help him dump and burn the body. I witnessed the commissioning of these crimes but I did not commit them. I am, however, guilty to that extent. The child was beaten at home but I cannot say I was forced to be at home because that is where I live,” Caroline testified.

Caroline further informed the court that she was also present when her husband went to buy paraffin to burn and dispose of the child’s body in the rubbish bin.

Kureva, on the other hand, informed the court that she intends to solicit the services of a private legal representative.

According to the National Head of the Criminal Investigation Directorate, Commissioner Nelius Becker, a total eight people, including children, reside at the house where the crime was committed.

It is, however, not clear if other people were at home when the crime was committed.

The deceased’s biological father is currently on his way to Namibia from Zimbabwe.

The state, represented by Adri Hendricks, opposed bail on the grounds of the seriousness of the offense, flight risk and that it would not be in the interest of the public and justice. The state also fears that the suspects might interfere with investigations.

The presiding Magistrate, Ndapewa Celma Amadhila, postpone the matter until 17 April for further police investigations, in which time the case of Edward will be added to that of the two women.
