Woman jailed for three years for pouring boiling water over another female

SWAKOPMUND: A 29-year-old woman was jailed for three years yesterday for pouring boiling water over another female here in April this year.

Josephina Nghaamwa, a mother of two children, was earlier found guilty of assault with the intent to cause grievous bodily harm by Swakopmund Magistrate Ileni Velikoshi, who also meted out the punishment today.

Nghaamwa burst out in tears upon hearing her sentence.

State Prosecutor Erastus Hatutale submitted before sentencing that the accused should not be given a fine, and should rather be removed from society and allowed to rehabilitate as her offence is serious.
