It has emerged that the South African State Security Agency had informed South African Post Office officials of the criminal history of the employee responsible of raping and murdering a Uyinene Mrwetyana.

This has been revealed by an internal Sapo investigation launched after she was attacked at the Clareinch Post Office in Claremont late last month. Following news that a post office employee was accused of Mrwetyana’s rape and murder, Communications Minister Stella Ndabeni-Abrahams demanded answers.

An initial probe by the Post Office has now discovered he was initially appointed through a labour broker and there was no screening when temporary staff were made part of Sapo in 2012.

When he was made permanent in 2013, the accused stated he had no criminal record. He did so again in 2016 when was appointed to the position of post office teller.

However last year, when Sapo took over Sassa payments, all customer-facing staff were subjected to screening by the State Security Agency.
Which resulted in the exposure of the accused being one of 174 employees who had criminal convictions and he was related to a car hijacking in 1998 for which he served five years in prison.

Sapo said the information was shared with officials in June last year but never reached executives or the board.
