Shepherds looking for cattle on a farm in Berlin, outside East London, stumbled upon the body of a woman who had been missing since 2 October

The body was identified as that of 24-year-old Sinesipho Lukhotsholo.

Police spokesperson Colonel Sibongile Soci said Lukhotsholo had travelled with her friend from Chalumna to visit their boyfriends in Berlin.

“On arrival in Berlin, they visited [a] local liquor outlet where an argument broke out between two groups which led to a brawl. As they were walking away, they met the group they had a fight with where shots were fired and they all ran in different directions and she was never seen [again]. Indications suggest that the woman was murdered elsewhere and dumped on the farm,” Soci said.

No arrests have been made and police are appealing to anyone who can assist the investigators with information to contact the investigating officer, Detective Sergeant Sindile Njomba, on 082 441 8938, or the nearest police station.
