The Tshwane University of Technology (TUT) is shocked and deeply saddened by the passing of Ntokozo Mayenzi Xaba, a third-year female student on 2 February 2023.

 Ms Ntokozo Manyenzi Xaba.

Xaba, who resided at Ekhaya Junction was enrolled for the National Diploma in Integrated Communication programme. She met her untimely death in what appears to be an incident of Gender-Based Violence. 

The University is waiting for an official report from the South African Police Services (SAPS). We wish to convey our deepest condolences to the student’s family,  friends and fellow students.

The University is providing the family of the deceased with as much support as we can at this difficult time.
