Another student murder, this time for being ‘a zombie’

A University of KwaZulu-Natal student, Khanyile Nzimande, has apparently confessed to killing his friend whom he described as “a zombie that blocked his fortune” in a video circulating on social media, writes Lwandile Bhengu for DispatchLIVE.

Samkelo Zondi’s burnt body was discovered on Saturday on a rugby field near the Westville campus in Durban. The 24-year-old BCom student is one of many students who have died at the hands of other students at institutions of higher learning in South Africa this year.

In April, Banzi Ndamase (29), a Water Sisulu University student, was thrown from the third floor of a Mthatha residence by fellow students. In June, Liyabona Marente and Siyabonga Manana were killed when a fresher's party turned violent at the same campus. In September, a University of Fort Hare student died after he was stabbed by a fellow student. Student Representative Council President Alungile Kamtshe at the time told DispatchLIVE that the victim was the eighth student to die on campus.
