The man arrested for the rape and murder of UCT student Uyinene Mrwetyana has been “summarily dismissed” from the Post Office.

This was confirmed by Communications and Digital Technologies Minister Stella Ndabeni-Abrahams.

After the brutal rape and murder of Mrwetyana, allegedly at the Clareinch Post Office in Cape Town, Ndabeni-Abrahams met with SAPO and requested a comprehensive report of its staff.

The report flagged 300 employees and the State Security Agency further identified 174 employees who have criminal records.

Commenting on the sacking of Uyinene Mrwetyana, Ndabeni-Abrahams said,

As he made himself guilty of gross misconduct by intentionally misleading the organisation and stating under oath that he had never been convicted of any criminal offense.

On the day of her disappearance, Uyinene Mryetyana had gone to enquire about a parcel at the Post Office, but the suspect in question told her the electricity at the post office had been off and told to  her to return later.

When she did, she was allegedly sexually assaulted and as she fought back, her attacker knocked her out, using a scale.
