It is alleged that the man was an employee at a post office – one of the last places Uyinene was seen before she disappeared.

According to the police report the man allegedly bludgeoned Mrwetyana with a scale after luring her inside the post office. She had allegedly fought back but was knocked unconscious.

Prosecutor Nomnikelo Konisi said that on August 24, Uyinene was lured into the Clareinch post office, then raped and killed. She had gone to collect a parcel at the post office shortly after 2 pm but was told to come back later as the power was off. When she returned, the accused was there alone. He allegedly invited her in under the auspices of being helpful, but then locked them inside and proceeded to assault her.

On Saturday the police said that they had discovered an unidentified body in Khayelitsha. DNA tests were being done to verify the identity of the person. Konisi said blood was found inside the post office and the man’s car. The prosecutor said the man had allegedly confessed to the crime and indicated to investigators where a body was hidden.
