SA post office rapist and murderer given life

The prosecution will be relying on the testimony of 16 State witnesses in its bid to prove its case against Luyanda Botha for the rape and murder of Uyinene Mrwetyana.

The high court in Cape Town handed him three life sentences for rape and murder, and five years for defeating the ends of justice.

The former Post Office worker accused of brutally raping and murdering 19-year-old Uyinene Mrewetyana in August 2019, previously appeared at the Wynberg magistrate's court on 5 November 2019 to answer for his crimes.

Shortly after her murder, reports emerged that Ms Mrwetyana had been lured into the mail room of a post office in Cape Town.

"She managed to run to the door but I caught her and knocked her to the ground". The post office was due to close at 13h00.

"Though it may be cold comfort to you today, it is not without significance that she was a fighter and clearly had a fighting spirit for her life". He cleaned up and waited until dark to remove her body in a large postal mail bag in his vehicle.
