In Other News – Uyinene Mrwetyana laid to rest

Tears flowed at the funeral of Uyinene Mrwetyana, the UCT student who was raped and murdered, allegedly by a Post Office employee in August.

Friends, politicians and family paid tribute to the 19-year-old whose missing person case, and subsequent rape and murder shook the nation.

On Monday, in a Cape Town court, it was tragically confirmed that the body of a woman found in Khayelitsha was that of Uyinene, the film and media student from the University of Cape Town, who had been missing for a week.

A 42-year-old suspect, who works at the Post Office, was arrested on last Saturday in connection with her disappearance. He was subsequently charged with murder and rape on Monday when the body was confirmed as Uyinene’s body.

She had last been seen alive at the post office, where she told friends she had gone to collect a parcel. see pictures
