Former National Council member and Okahandja constituency regional councillor Steve Biko Booys, who has spent the past two months in police custody on two counts of rape involving a 20-year-old woman, was denied bail in the Okahandja Magistrate’s Court today. According to the Namibian newspaper, Magistrate Swartz turned down a bail application by Booys as he did not show it would be in the interest of the administration of justice. Booys has to appear in court again on 14 July.
