The family of a student- whose decomposing body was found lying in a pool of blood in his room at a nursing college in Klipfontein Road, outside Gugulethu- is desperately seeking answers to the events that led to his violent death.

Sinovuyo Yhusi(21), from Kuyasa in Khayelitsha was a first year student at the Western Cape College of Nursing in Heideveld. The college is a campus of the Cape Peninsula University Technology (CPUT).

His body was discovered on Monday last week, and no arrests have yet been made, with the police not forthcoming about who and how the corpse was discovered.

Sergeant Noloyiso Rwexana, provincial police spokesperson, confirmed the incident, but said the circumstances surrounding the death were still under police investigation.

“Circumstances surrounding the death of a 21 year old man, whose decomposed body was found on Monday in the evening in the dormitory of the nursing college in Heideveld, is under investigation. An inquest case was opened for investigation,” said Rwexana. Post mortem results are expected to give a more clearer picture regarding the death. However, news of the young Sinovuyo’s death, has come as a huge blow to the family, according to his father, Boy-Boy Ntusini.

He added that “the day the body was discovered, family members were denied access to the corpse, due to its state of decomposition.”

A visibly emotional Ntusini said the family had received a call from the college around midday on that Monday, informing them that their son was no longer alive.

“We immediately rushed to the college, and when we arrived there, the police were already there. The scene was cordoned off. They (police) refused us an opportunity to see the body,” said Ntusini.

He said since the incident, they had not received any report from the police as well as the college.

“We are still waiting for the police investigation to be finalised ... We will then contemplate our next course of action.”

Ntusini described his son as a disciplined child who liked writing poems. “I’m so hurt because we were expecting a lot from him as he was our first born. Even though we are not wealthy, we tried to give him everything he wanted, because we wanted him to be happy,” said the distraught father.

CPUT media liaison officer Lauren Kansley refused to share any further information. She said police were investigating, and the next of kin had been informed.
