The family of Thembisile Yende, the Eskom employee who was murdered and found in her office, accuse Eskom of hiding crucial information that may have led to her murder.
Yende was found beaten and suffocated in her office in Springs, on the East Rand, a week after she was reported missing.
It’s believed the 30-year-old was on a verge of blowing a whistle on copper corruption involving her colleague and alleged killer David Ngwenya.
Friends and family picketed outside the power utility’s offices in Johannesburg Tuesday.
It has been more than 290 days on since her brutal murder, and questions continue to pile up around her murder.
Her suspected killer is out on bail. But there could still be more people with blood in their hands.
NPA Spokesperson Phindi louw-Mjonondwane says, “The investigations will guide us as to which path to follow and the accused has been charged with murder.”
Her brother Mboneni Yende says, “Seeing that the cameras were either faulty or switched off for two weeks prior the 17th of May, what measures were taken to remedy the situation? We demand to know who is responsible for the cameras or the CCTV.”
The family has given Eskom seven days to respond.
