Sisulu saddened by the murder of a student on MUT campus

The Chancellor of Mangosuthu University Technology (MUT) and International Relations and Cooperation Minister, Hon Lindiwe Sisulu, has extended her condolences to the Khumalo family and the entire community of the university for the sad passing of their daughter and fellow student, Zolile Khumalo.

According to reports, Zolile was murdered by her former partner on campus following what police are describing as a domestic quarrel.

The Minister condemns the killing of a 21-year old Quantity Surveying student who had a bright future ahead of her. I feel deep sympathy for her parents, family and friends, it is painful and very sad. We must do more to protect women from being murdered by partners or former partners. We trust that the judicial system will take necessary steps and send a clear message to perpetrators that South Africans are tired of such senseless killings will not tolerate them, Sisulu said.
