#RIPUyinene messages have been pouring in on social media after a 42-year-old man has been charged with the rape and murder of UCT student Uyinene Mrwetyana, as well as defeating the ends of justice.

The man, who is an employee at the Clareinch Post Office, where Mrwetyana was last seen alive, made his first appearance in the Wynberg Magistrate’s Court on Monday. 

Prosecutor Nomnikelo Konisi informed the court that the accused was charged with rape and murder, as well as defeating the ends of justice.

Konisi said: “Your honour, on the day of her disappearance, she came to collect a parcel at Claremont Post Office. The lights were out and the accused asked her to return later.

“When she returned, he accosted her and allegedly raped her. She fought back and he hit her with a scale.

“The accused later dumped her body in Lingelethu West and took investigators to the scene.”

Following social media reports that Mrwetyana’s remains had been found, police said an autopsy and DNA tests would be conducted on a body found in Lingelethu West, Khayelitsha last Monday.
