Namhla Mtwa's suspected murder is now a top priority for the South African Police Service (SAPS) in the Eastern Cape. Mtwa was found dead in her car in Mthatha in April, according to SAPS spokesperson Tembinkosi Kinana.
"An unknown suspect shot and killed Namhla Mtwa, 35, when she arrived at her Sidwadwa home in Mthatha." "She was shot in the upper torso and died on the scene," Kinana said.
Lieutenant General Mene, the Eastern Cape Police Commissioner, named a senior manager to supervise Mtwa's murder investigation. According to SAPS, the detective in charge of the case and her family have been communicating regularly since then.
On social media, there has been a flurry of responses to Namhla Mtwa's alleged murder. Mtwa was allegedly the victim of gender-based assault by her lover, according to some.
On Twitter, photos of an obviously bruised Mtwa have also been posted. According to those familiar with the situation, she had decided to quit the relationship and that her boyfriend may have taken his violence a step too far as a result.
"The SAPS welcomes the response of several members of the public who approached the police with information regarding concerns connected to gender-based violence and femicide," the SAPS remarked, ostensibly referring to this.People are encouraged to keep providing information with the SAPS in order to protect the investigation from potentially erroneous information that could unwittingly mislead the course of ongoing and sensitive investigations."
