WINDHOEK: A 43-year-old woman was allegedly raped by a 17 year old boy at Opuwo in the Kunene Region on Sunday.

The Namibian Police Force’s (NamPol) Public Relations Officer, Pendukeni Haikali told Nampa yesterday that the suspect approached the victim in a bar at Opuwo at around 23h40 and made sexual advances towards her, which the complainant rejected.
