“Upon arrival at the identified cottages, police found the body of Nokubonga Nomkhosi Zungu (35) on a bed with her throat slit. A knife was found placed next to the deceased’s head. A case of murder was opened at Esikhaleni SAPS for investigation.

“A warrant of arrest has been issued by the court however, the suspect is on the run and his current whereabouts are unknown.

“We appeal to anyone who may have information regarding the whereabouts of the Phumlani Mthembu (in the attached photo) to contact the investigating officer Detective Sergeant Sifiso Sabela.”
