Two more suspects appeared on Friday morning in the Walvis Bay Magistrate’s Court in connection with the murder of Walvis Bay businessman Hans-Jörg Möller, bringing the number of arrested suspects to five.
The two suspects, 28-year-old Malakia Shiweda and 29-year-old Elly Ndapuka Hinaivali, appeared for murder, attempted murder and armed robbery before Magistrate John Sindano.
They were denied bail and had their case postponed to August 2 for further investigation and a formal bail application.
Shiweda was rearrested last week in Outapi. He is the owner of the vehicle that was allegedly used in the robbery, but was released after he made a sworn statement to the police denying his involvement in the robbery.
However he was rearrested on Wednesday, according to the police at Walvis Bay.
The fourth suspect Hinaivali was arrested on Wednesday between Windhoek and Okahandja while he was allegedly walking to Windhoek.
The duo had their case combined with that of David Tashiya, David Shekudja and Gotlieb Panduleni who had already made their court appearance in the matter. The five are accused of viciously assaulting Carol-Ann Möller and shooting her husband in the stomach while he was trying to protect his family during the robbery on June 17.
Möller was rushed to hospital shortly after the robbers fled the house. He underwent an emergency operation in the Cottage Hospital in Swakopmund but died several hours later.
