eskomSABC News reports that it has been a year since Thembisile Yen DE’s brutal murder, and the family of slain Eskom employee says it has yet to find closure.  

They have accused the police of not pulling their weight in the course of investigations.  The decomposing body of the 30-year-old Eskom employee was found in an office at her work place – a Spring substation – two weeks after she went missing.  She had been beaten and her head covered with a plastic bag.  Her colleague has been charged with her murder.  The family believes Yende was murdered by her colleagues after she had planned to blow the whistle on a copper syndicate they were allegedly involved in.  Thembisile’s brother Mboneni Yende said:  ”We are running this investigation as the family.  There is information that we keep stumbling on and giving it to the police.  Not enough resources are put into this investigation and hence we decided that as a family let us stand up and do our ground work to help with information.”  The matter is due to return to court on Monday.  The Yende family plans a march commemorating their daughter’s life.
