Johannesburg - A domestic worker at the Cape Town home of Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu's daughter was found murdered, police said on Friday.

Warrant Officer November Filander said the woman's body was found on the floor of a house in Milnerton Central on Thursday afternoon.

"It is alleged that the owners of the house left the premises at 07:00, when the domestic worker was still alive."

They returned home at about 16:30 and discovered the front door was wide open. They called a local security company who entered the premises and found the woman's body.

Her hands and feet had been bound with clothing. She had stab wounds to her body.

"The deceased was identified as 40-year-old Angila Machinga from Zimbabwe. It is suspected that the incident occurred between 13:00 and 16:00.

"It is also unclear at this stage if anything was taken from the house.

"A murder docket was opened for investigation purposes. No one has been arrested as yet," said Filander.
