Another week’s wait for justice for Cleo Diko – Action Society

“Action Society is extremely disappointed with the postponement in the case of Cleo Diko. Today, the Mitchells Plain Magistrates court was packed to the rafters with friends and loved ones of Cleo, expecting the magistrate to deliver a judgement, but they were only met with yet another postponement,” said Kaylynn Palm, Head of Action Society’s Action Centre in the Western Cape. The case has been postponed to 27 March where we hope to see justice for the young woman.

Cleo went missing in October 2022. Her decomposed body was found three months later on 27 January 2023 in Mandalay in Cape Town. There was a rope around her neck and her body was hidden under a bed, covered with cement and tiles. Her identity had to be confirmed through DNA testing. Her killer, Sandile Jegwa, was arrested near a railway, where he was living.

Is there justice in SA?

At Action Society, we often see delays in the justice system. What do you think? Have you experienced this too?
