The attempted murder case of Namibia Qualifications Authority Chief Executive Officer, Franz Gertze, who was accused of shooting his wife Anittha Gertze six times, was withdrawn on Thursday after the Prosecutor General declined to prosecute Gertze due to “lack of evidence”. The Namibia press agency explains that Gertze was arrested in November 2019 for shooting his wife at their house in Windhoek’s Pionierspark residential area and she was admitted to hospital in critical condition. Upon her recovery, during police investigations, she told the police she was withdrawing the case because her husband did not shoot her intentionally and she was shot when she tried to take the gun away from him when he tried to shoot himself. The case was then handed over to the PG to decide whether to prosecute Gertze.
