Oshana regional Swapo Coordinator Samuel Nelongo made his first appearance in the Ondangwa Magistrate’s Court where he was granted bail of N.dollars 2 500 on Tuesday.
Nelongo, 53, is facing a charge of stock theft. He was arrested on Sunday on allegations that he was found in possession of two suspected stolen cattle, which he was transporting to his farm in the Oshikoto Region’s Mangetti area.
However, Nelongo was accused of possessing only one cow, worth N.dollars 5 000, when he appeared before the court.
This is contrary to the Namibian Police confirmation to Nampa on Monday that he was arrested while in possession of two suspected stolen cattle.
Magistrate Ilge Rheent postponed Nelongo’s case to 09 April this year for further police investigations.
Public Prosecutor Charly Iyambo appeared for the State, while Nelongo was represented by local legal practitioner, Natasha Ndilula.
