Family of Eskom employee found dead to picket outside the Springs substation


On that day, it had been 10 days since she had been missing.

The brother of Eskom employee Thembisile Yende, whose body was found at the Springs substation in Ekurhuleni, said on Wednesday morning that the family would be holding a picket outside the substation in the hopes that their questions to the utility would be answered.

Eskom spokesperson, Khulu Phasiwe also confirmed the discovery. He said family members went to the police station to report her missing after she did not return home and was not answering her phone.

Yende was a 29 years old at the time of her death.

Makhubele says 30-year-old Yende went missing two weeks ago, after reporting for work at Eskom.

"We will find out what the cause of death is when the post-mortem results are out‚" he said. That is highly impossible.

"When we started searching for her, we received no help from Eskom". Why the cameras were not working‚ I don't know‚ but there is definitely more to the disappearance. She was found in a sub station.

"Something untoward happened with the CCTV camera at the Springs power station where she was last seen - what happened to the cameras - this will form part of the ongoing investigation", the paper reported he said.

Mboneni Yende said the family was not coping with the death and was disappointed with the manner in which Eskom handled the situation.

"There was no sign of the woman and her cellphone was switched off". "The police had to break the door because it was locked‚ only to discover the body of the missing woman".

Her childhood friend Sibonisile Nhlapho says while she is hurt by her death, she knows Yende had found happiness.

"The police are appealing to anyone who might have information to come forward by contacting the nearest police station or alternatively call our Crime Line 08600 10111 or SMS 32211".
