CAPE TOWN - Police have not made any headway in the case of a Khayelitsha teenager whose body was found in a communal toilet in the area.

The 19-year-old Sinoxolo Mafevuka’s half-naked body was discovered by a resident who had gone to the toilet last week.

Police say there've been no arrests in connection with the murder of Mafevuka.

Her half-naked body was found shoved in a toilet in Khayelitsha’s SST Block.

A resident made the grim discovery in the early hours of last Tuesday morning.

Her clothes had been stuffed in the toilet cistern.
