Teacher kills, burns daughter on braai stand

Manibia braai murder

A teacher from Ongwediva shocked many in the northern town when she allegedly killed her 26-year-old handicapped daughter and burnt her body on a braai stand on Saturday.
Police confirmed the alleged murder yesterday during their weekend press briefing in Windhoek.

The deceased, identified as Magdalena Nunyango Amunyoko, was reportedly born with a rare condition that restricted her body functions, left her bedridden and with blurred speech.

According to witnesses and neighbours, Amunyoko is suspected to have been hacked to death with a panga before her body was burnt on a braai stand behind the house.

Amunyoko’s wheelchair, household appliances, newspapers, a fan, dishes, cups, DSTV satellite dish, clothes and a panga were also burned together with her body.

The suspect, a teacher at Shapwa Combined School at Ongwediva, is a single mother of two boys and the late Amunyoko.

The gruesome murder is believed to have occurred at around 18h00 on Friday and the body was discovered at about 10h00 on Saturday by one of the sons, who then called the police, leading to the mother’s arrest.
