A man accused of murdering his live-in girlfriend by hitting her on the head with a hammer, confessed to the crime.

Elias Kalume (29) admitted that he had comitted the crime to the court on Friday, however the details of his confession cannot be made public at this stage.

Kalume made his first formal appearance before magistrate Vicky Nickolaidis on Monday and was remanded to custody.

During the proceedings, the accused indicated that he will apply for a legal aid lawyer.

State prosecutor Tuihaleni Hilikuete said that the accused is charged with murder along with contravening the Domestic Violence Act.

“Investigations are not done as they are at an early stage. The state opposes bail due to the serious nature of the offence,” she said.

The case was postponed to 18 October for further investigation.

The accused can apply for bail before his next appearance.

According to the incident report released by the police, the murder occurred on Thursday (9 September) between 04:40 and 05:30 at the house where the accused and the victim were living located in Coris Street, Kuisebmond.

The deceased, Frontina Ndiyaamwa Ndemulunda, (26), employed by Hangana Seafood factory, went home from work where she found her boyfriend (Kalume).

The suspect allegedly started arguing with her and accused her of having an affair with another man. He tried pushing her out of the room and she allegedly refused to leave.

According to the police report, the suspect allegedly started punching her in the face and then assaulted her with a metal hammer.

She collapsed and died at the scene.

Kalume left Ndemulunda’s body in the room and handed himself over at Narraville police station where he was arrested.
