Minister Albert Fritz to meet the family of Sinovuyo Magatya

10 June 2021

Today, 10 June 2021, Minister Albert Fritz will meet Cllr. Thulani Dasa at the Kuyasa Clinic in Khayelitsha. Thereafter the Minister and the Councilor will proceed to the family home of Sinovuyo Magatya, whose body was discovered last week.

Sinovuyo disappeared after leaving a shebeen last week with the 30-year-old suspect who has since been arrested in connection with her murder. The suspect initially denied any knowledge or involvement and actually accompanied the family to people he said he saw Sinovuyo leave the shebeen with in Makhaza. After Sinovuyo’s cellphone was found at the suspect’s home, police went back and arrested him, whereupon they discovered a bloody towel. Sinovuyo’s body was then found, hours later, in an abandoned shack also belonging to the suspect.

Members of the media are cordially invited to engage Minister Fritz and Cllr. Dasa at the Kuyasa Clinic.

Time: 13:00
Venue: Kuyasa Clinic
