The young woman who was allegedly killed by her boyfriend, JoziFM DJ Donald Sebolai on Sunday, worked at Wits University as a secretary.
Flavia Rachel Tshabalala who worked in the Wits School of Civil Engineering, was found dead in her flat in Soweto bypolice. She was allegedly stabbed to death.
Wits Communications confirmed to Wits Vuvuzela on Tuesday that Tshabalala “worked as a senior secretary” for the university.
Professor Ian Jandrell, Dean of the Faculty of Engineering and the Built Environment referred to Tshabalala as “a revered and much-appreciated staff member.”
“Her death leaves a tremendous void and she will be dearly remembered,” he said.
Tshabalala was also studying towards a Bachelor of Arts (BA) in psychology at the Wits Plus centre for part-time students.
The Independent Online reported earlier that Sebolai, a chat show host, called a friend of Tshabalala’s and admitted to killing her.
He then called her again early on Sunday morning and said that Tshabalala was “just sleeping” and her friend should come to the flat to “help wake her up”.
The friend alerted police which led to the discovery of Tshabalala’s body. Sebolai has not been seen or heard from since.
