The driver of the vehicle that crashed into three people in Sam Nujoma Drive, Hochland Park in July last year made a third appearance in the Windhoek Magistrate’s Court yesterday.
Morne Mouton, 20, who has in the meantime acquired the services of legal eagle Sisa Namandje, was informed that his laboratory results are not available as yet and his case is to be postponed by mutual agreement to August 22 for lab results and further investigations.
He faces a charge of culpable homicide and one of driving with an excessive blood alcohol level, alternatively reckless or negligent driving. He is currently free on bail of N$6 000 which he was granted shortly after his arrest on July 04.
According to information available, Mouton crashed into a stationary City Police vehicle at high speed, killing three people standing on the pavement. Among the deceased were City Police officials Manfred Goaseb and Werner Simon, 22.
The third person killed was Joshua Ngenokesho, a teacher according to media reports.
It is alleged Goaseb and Werner were en route to a reported housebreaking incident in Hochland Park, but stopped at Sam Nujoma Drive after noticing suspicious activity in a nearby riverbed.
They allegedly searched a man at the scene and found three cellphones and a knife in his possession after which they called for assistance from another member of the police.
It was during this time that an allegedly intoxicated Mouton approached at high speed from an easterly direction and rammed right into the stationary police vehicle, causing the immediate demise of the three deceased. Mouton was arrested at the scene of the crime.
