Suspect in Cleo Diko’s murder hid her decomposed body under cement and tiles under his bed – Action Society

Sandile Jegwa, the 38-year-old man accused of murdering 34-year-old Cleo Diko, appeared in the Mitchell’s Plain Magistrates court today. The case was postponed and moved to regional court and will be heard again on 29 September. Action Society is overseeing Cleo’s case and continues to support her family.

“Cleo went missing in October last year. Her decomposed body was found with a rope around her neck, hidden under a bed, covered with cement and tiles in Mandalay, in Cape Town on 27 January 2023. Her identity had to be confirmed through DNA testing,” explains Action Society’s Kaylynn Palm.

During their search for her killer, police received information about a man seen with Cleo and they followed the leads closely to track him down. During that time, the police received a call from a woman who told them about blood-stained blankets and pillows she had come across while cleaning the separate entrance where her son stayed. Jegwa was arrested near a railway close to his home shortly after.
