Kabokweni teacher is found murdered despite August being Women’s Month

The increase in the violence meted out against women formed most of Premier Refilwe Mtsweni’s Women’s Month celebration speech the past weekend.


Another woman has been found dead in Mpumalanga barely two days after the province celebrated Women’s Month in Kwaggafontein on 11 August 2018.

The cops are now appealing to anybody with information that can help find the killer of 50-year-old Florence Nyundu.

Nyundu, a mother of three and a local school teacher, is from the section of Sifunindlela in the Mbombela township of Kabokweni, north of city.

Police say Nyundu’s lifeless body was found with a gunshot wound in hospital after her family found her shot and rushed her to hospital on Monday mid-day this week (13 Aug).

“It is unknown who shot her and the reason for her murder is currently unknown,” Kabokweni police spokesman Sergeant Gerald Sedibe said.

“She had a gunshot wound to her upper body,” said Sedibe.

The woman’s murder has sent shock waves in the area and among people who had known her for many years.
