Yesterday, December 30, the police confirmed that the skeletal remains found in the grave were indeed Madiba's. Brigadier Mashadi Selepe said they could not divulge more information to the media until their investigation had been completed.
22-year-old Madiba disappeared in August 2013. She had spent the weekend at a friend's house and was expected back home in Diepkloof but didn't return. The family searched high and low but every tip on her whereabouts had turned out to be false.
