Mrwetyana’s family thanks justice system

The family of murdered University of Cape Town student, Uyinene Mrwetyana, has thanked the police and justice system following the handing down of three life sentences to the man convicted of her rape and murder.

Mrwetyana’s body was discovered in a shallow grave in Khayelitsha, days after she went to collect a parcel at a Post Office in Claremont on 24 August. Botha admitted to luring Uyinene to the area where he raped her, while she tried to fight him off. He will not be eligible for parole for the next 25 years.

“Because he has only been able to make that confession on realising that in fact, the investigation officer had already seen where she was buried and as if that was not enough, in order to hide all evidence, he tried to destroy the body,” says Vuyani Mrwetyana.
