Cape Town - A man suspected of murdering a woman in her home and then dumping her body in a public toilet is expected to appear in the Khayelitsha Magistrate's Court on a murder charge on Thursday.

The woman's body was found in the toilet in RR Block in Site C, Khayelitsha, at 08:00 on Monday. She was believed to have been murdered in her home in the informal settlement.

The man, 27, was arrested on Tuesday afternoon.

Another Khayelitsha woman was found murdered on Sunday. Noluvo Swelindawo, 22, was found shot dead on a footbridge near the Driftsands Nature Reserve. It was suspected that she was killed because she was lesbian.

On March 2 this year 19-year-old Sinoxolo Mafevuka was found naked and strangled in a communal toilet in SST Block, Town Two, Khayelitsha. Her boyfriend's two cousins were arrested for the crime. They are awaiting trial on charges of rape and murder.
