‘Glenvista murder may be inside job’
A domestic worker was murdered in Glenvista on Thursday night.
JOHANNESBURG - Police on Friday said they're investigating the possibility that the murder of a domestic worker during a robbery in Glenvista may have been an inside job.
Maboithatelo Taele was tied up and gagged at her employer's house on Thursday night, while a group of robbers stole the safe and other goods.
Xolani Gumede said his wife discovered the victim, nicknamed Elsie, in a cupboard.
He said they felt as if they've lost a member of their own family.
"She was like a part of the family. My three-year-old son preferred her [Elsie] over his mom."
Taele's family lives in Lesotho and her brother has been informed of the murder.
Officials are now looking for any leads.
