Manenberg police detectives are seeking information to identify two people.

The body of a woman who was hit by a train has been identified through her fingerprints as Nancy Mnqonceni, but the police need further evidence to be sure about their identification. The woman was killed while attempting to cross the train tracks from Gugulethu to Manenberg.

According to Manenberg police spokesperson Captain Ian Bennett, a train travelling in the direction of Cape Town hit Mnqonceni, killing her instantly. He adds that the body was severely disfigured.

Mnqonceni lived at an address in Phillipi which cannot be tracked.

In another case, the body of a man, estimated to be in his thirties, was knocked down on the N2 inbound last Saturday. The unidentified man was wearing green shorts, a white T-shirt and a black shirt.

V Anyone who knows or can identify the victims or who has a missing relative should call the Manenberg police on 021 699 9400.
