    The problem is that there is ZERO communication from SAPS on this matter.

    It's not their job to inform the public of the exact events, especially just because you're curious. If anything they want to play things close to their chest, so as to not give anything away.

    In other countries, LE has regular press conferences to keep people updated on specific matters.

    If you have followed the SAPS track record on crime investigation in SA, you will understand the anger and concern over their uselessness in YET ANOTHER CRIME INVESTIGATION.

    Default Mystery around Thembisile Yende's death

    Johannesburg - ''Eskom should start questioning their own employees and security guards. They are the ones that should know what happened to Thembi.''

    Thembisile Yende's distraught brother, Mboneni Yende said on Tuesday that utility giant should question all employees including security guards.

    "This raises the question: 'Do they really care about their employees?'" Mboneni told News24 on Tuesday afternoon.

    On the day Yende was reported missing, police dogs searched the premises but could not pick up her scent.

    At first it was reported that her body was found inside her locked office, but Eskom spokesperson Khulu Phasiwe said Yende was found inside a locked storeroom on the same premises sniffer dogs and police had searched.

    "The police came with their own sniffer dogs and searched the building, but did not find anything. No-one went inside the locked office," an Eskom spokesperson told News24 on Tuesday.

    CCTV footage


    The 29-year-old's body was found after Eskom workers noticed a bad smell. She was reported missing on May 17. Yende had worked for Eskom since December 2015.

    A post mortem has shown that Yende had sustained head injuries and had bruises on her neck before she died.

    When she arrived at work that morning, the closed circuit camera picked her up, but a few moments later the system didn't pick up any movement.

    On Tuesday morning, Mboneni said that the CCTV footage will be their main focus in an investigation.

    "The main issue for us is the CCTV footage. We are investigating why it stopped working and why it never picked anything up," he said.

    Eskom had also cut the day time security guards. There were only night time security guards at the substation.

    While she was buried on Saturday, her family was still demanding answers.

    "We thought that when we receive her post mortem it will be easy to deal with, but knowing she was killed was hard to accept. Our world came tumbling down," Mboneni said.

    Mboneni said they had received no formal sit down with Eskom regarding a way forward.

    "They [Eskom] have never met with us. Our bodies are tired. The image of her lying dead on the floor is hard to erase."

    #ThembisileYende: Man arrested for premeditated murder

    Johannesburg – Police have made a breakthrough in the Thembisile Yende murder case and have arrested a 43-year-old man.
    Allegations are that the man, David Ngwenya, is an Eskom employee too but police have declined to confirm that.

    Ngwenya was arrested in Carletonville last week and charged with Yende's premeditated murder. He appeared in the Springs Magistrate's Court this morning.

    I hope they got the right guy, our police are known for bungling in such cases.
    I am of a nation that would not allow that fear of death, of torture, of imprisonment, of exile or persecution should result in the perpetuation of injustice.

    Sounds like the guy was in hiding, and as an employed person why was he hiding? I heard some wild rumours that she may have been killed to keep her from talking about something these guys had going at work. Don't believe the rumours, as they seem to emanate from social media.

    That does sound very suspicious, could it be the supervisor whose computer was seized as reported in the news?

    Man 'linked' to Eskom employee's death dies after questioning - police

    Johannesburg - Police say the owner of the car that was allegedly used to commit the murder of Eskom employee Thembisile Yende has since died after he was questioned by police. Captain Johannes Ramphora said police are investigating whether Yende was murdered elsewhere and her body dumped at the Eskom substation in Springs where she worked.

    Ramphora told News24 the man owned the white BMW that was allegedly used in the crime. "We suspect that he was a friend of [David] Ngwenya and that they used the BMW to commit the murder. He died of natural causes," Ramphora said.

    Used to commit the murder not to murder her.

    What is next? The investigator dealing with the case has tragically been killed in a motor vehicle accident?

    Who knows, it might just be a coincidence or something more sinister.
