“There’s been a question asked time and again by the media ‘is it political?’, ‘is it criminal?’ and it does seem to be a combination of both.”

The 28-year-old’s body was found near Mbombela on Tuesday – four days after she was reported missing.

She was last seen a grocery store, which is about six kilometres from her home that she shared with her brother and her adopted three-year-old daughter.
