He had a contract with the University to accommodate students in three separate guesthouse-cum-student lodge facilities across Mbombela.

The University of Mpumalanga has announced they have cancelled a student accomodation accreditation to murder-accused Philemon Lukhele with immediate effect.

Lukhele owns the Insika Guest House Student Accommodation in Mbombela which has three properties housing students for the University of Mpumalanga.

This follows Lukhele’s arrest for Hillary Gardee’s murder this week…

The students had been advised to vacate all of Lukhele’s three properties as the University will no longer pay Lukhele for their stay at his facilities.

Lukhele, a senior member of eSwatini’s biggest opposition party Pudemo, is arrested with two other men. The party has also taken a decision to suspend his membership pending the case.

Pudemo said they are so opposed to gender-based violence and had to prove this by cutting off all ties.

University management also says they took this decision to cut the accreditation contract with Lukhele because they take the issue seriously and have to act in keeping with their value of Integrity.

Hilary was the daughter of EFF senior leader and lawyer Godrich Gardee, who has also offered a “handsome reward” to anyone who can come through and assist police with information concerning how his 28-year-old daughter was abducted while shopping at the Nelspruit Plaza Spar Friday 29 April 2022.

She was found dead on Tuesday 3 May 2022 in a Mbombela forest plantation – just 500 meters from the R532 road connecting Mbombela and Sabie.

She had a bullet wound and the cops had added a charge of rape on the three accused’s charge sheet.
