Cape Town — As students gathered in Court 4 at Wynberg Magistrate's Court, they all anticipated positive news.  

They all hoped Uyinene Mrwetyana — aka Nene was still alive. But what followed shocked everyone. 

The missing student was brutally murdered inside the Clareinch Post Office. The 42-year-old Post Office worker arrested on Friday faces charges of rape, murder and defeating the ends of justice.

The court heard that the accused confessed to the murder and led police to where her body was dumped. Bawa ordered that the accused's name and photograph not be published.

Nene was raped and bludgeoned to death with a scale inside the post office, tears welled up in their eyes.

“The student went to the post office to inquire about a parcel but was told by the accused to come back later because the electricity was off at that time. She returned and he was alone at the post office.
Nene's Last Moments

“He locked the door, assaulted her and penetrated her vagina and she fought back. When he heard her screaming he took a scale inside the post office and hit her. He then dumped her body in Lingelethu West. Blood was found inside the post office and on his shoe when he was arrested,” the court heard.

“The SA Post Office is shocked and saddened by the horrible and inhumane act alleged against an employee. It is deplorable and we are embarrassed. We send our condolences to the affected family. We are collaborating with the police and wish for the might of the law to take its course.”

University spokesperson Nombuso Shabalala said: “The university executive remains deeply distressed by the unacceptable levels of violence against women and the marginalised in South African society on a daily basis.

“The UCT executive will be meeting urgently to discuss how we can commemorate Nene’s life and the many in our society who are affected by violence.”

Archbishop Thabo Makgoba, reacting to the brutal murder said: “On my own and the Anglican Church’s behalf, my deepest condolences to the family of Uyinene Mrwetyana, her friends and fellow students and staff at UCT.

"May her soul rest in peace. As the father of a daughter at the same institution, I feel this loss especially painfully. Society must rally against the dreadful prevalence of violence against women and children. The quick investigation and arrest in this case is to be commended.”

President Cyril Ramaphosa has reacted to the gruesome murder. "This is a very dark period for us as a country. The assaults, rapes and murders of South African women are a stain on our national conscience." Ramaphosa said.

"We have just commemorated Women's Month. Sixty-three years after the women of 1956 marched for the right to live in freedom, women in this country live in fear - not of the apartheid police, but of their brothers, sons, fathers and uncles. We should all hang our heads in shame," he added.

“He looks like he was a sweet guy..... al the time I’m talking to a murderer” Veronica Smith wept outside the post office where the UCT student was killed
