Nokuthula Simelane's sister wants answers, truth

26 February, 12:08 PM

Nokuthula Simelane's sister Nthembi Nkadimeng speaks about the murder of her sister and says she is "disappointed" with the testimony of men accused of Simelane's murder. Umkhonto we Sizwe (MK) member Simelane went missing in 1983 after apartheid-era security police arrested her. Her remains were never recovered.

Two years after her disappearance, Simelane's family sought the media’s help to find her. Her picture was sent to various newspapers. A policeman who had worked at the Vlakplaas police station identified her. The policeman said the last time he saw her, she had become ill as a result of the assaults she endured.

Now the National Prosecurity Authority (NPA) is pursuing a case of murder against four former security policeman for the apartheid era crime. They appeared in the Pretoria Magistrate's Court on Friday, 26 February and were granted bail.
