Slain DUT student to be buried in his home town
Slain Durban University of Technology (DUT) student Sandile Ndlovu left his home in Mpumalanga with hopes of returning in a graduation gown - but instead arrived home in a coffin.
Ndlovu’s body was collected from a Durban mortuary on Monday after he succumbed to his injuries on Saturday.
He had been in intensive care after being stabbed in a lecture room two weeks ago.
Ndlovu’s uncle and family spokesperson, Tshepo Mokoena, told our sister publication TimesLIVE on Friday that the body had arrived at the family home in White River, Mpumalanga, and that they were busy with funeral preparations.
The first-year industrial engineering student, who had been described as God-fearing and peaceful, will be laid to rest at the weekend.
Meanwhile, the university said in a media briefing on Wednesday that they believed the prime suspects in Ndlovu’s stabbing could only be fellow students.
