THE STATE



versus



REINHOLD SHAPUMBA



[HIGH COURT REVIEW CASE NO.: 372/07]




CORAM: MULLER, J. et PARKER, J.



Delivered on: 2007 March 26



REVIEW JUDGMENT:

PARKER, J:




[1] The accused pleaded guilty to assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm. He was convicted on his plea of guilty and sentenced. I have perused the record, and I am satisfied that the proceedings are in accordance with justice, but the formulation of the sentence is wrong.






[2] In the result, the conviction is confirmed and the sentence is set aside and the following is put in its place:




The accused is sentenced to pay a fine of N$500,00 or to

five months’ imprisonment, wholly suspended for three

years on condition that the accused is not convicted of

assault with the intent to do grievous bodily harm,

committed during the period of suspension.
