A 14-year-old girl was discovered raped and murdered in Ngqokweni, Centane, Eastern Cape. This occurred after Amahle Tyityaba went missing on the eighth of this month and was discovered dead in a nearby forest on the 18th.
According to Amahle’s uncle, Mluleki Tyityaba, the community found a man who admitted to the incident and was later detained. He was released a day after his arrest, and Tyityaba believes there is little chance of justice being served.
“Amahle went missing on the 8. A search was conducted until she was found dead on the 18th. A man who is suspected was found by the community, and he admitted. He told us he met the girl on her way home and raped her. When he was arrested, we thought we got justice, but now that he has been released, we have no hope.”
According to police spokesman Col. Priscilla Naidu, the 65-year-old suspect was released pending the results of the DNA tests.
“The Provincial Commissioner, General Mene, has issued a warning to the community members to refrain from taking the law into their own hands and to allow police to investigate.
“This warning emanates after the body of a 14-year-old girl was found on the 18th of July in Willowvale. She was not reported missing; however, a case of murder has been opened for further investigation.”
