The victim’s girlfriend alleges the last time she saw Goreseb was two days prior to the incident.
Goreseb told her he was going out to a party at Toatite Bar in Mondesa, where he also helps cleaning from time to time.
When Goreseb was found two days later, he was described as being severely traumatised and unable to speak. He was savagely beaten and sustained possible internal bleeding, broken ribs and bruises all over his body.
