The Rep - - NEWS -

NO ONE has been ar­rested in the mur­der of Mlungisi teen Vuy­ol­wethu He­meni, 14, whose burnt body was found near the Eskom res­i­den­tial area on Au­gust 26.

He­meni, who lived in Eskom, went miss­ing on Au­gust 25. A pupil of Edlel­weni Pri­mary School, she did not re­turn home.

Po­lice re­cently con­firmed (“Burnt body be­longs to miss­ing teenager – Ko­mani po­lice”) that DNA tests had linked the body to He­meni.

A task team has since been es­tab­lished to probe the killing, but po­lice spokes­woman Cap­tain Namhla Mdle­leni con­firmed on Wed­nes­day that no sus­pect had yet been taken into cus­tody. – Rep re­porter
