Durban - The University of KwaZulu-Natal has confirmed that Natasha Conabeer was not a student at any of their campuses.
According to UKZN spokesperson, Ashton Bodrick, 23-year-old Conabeer had applied to study at the tertiary institution in 2014, however she never followed through and formally registered.
“This, however, does not diminish the outrage we feel as the UKZN community that is primarily made up of young people like her,” Bodrick said.
In a statement issued on Monday, Bodrick said they were shocked and deeply saddened by Conabeer’s death.
“We extend out sincere condolences to her family at this difficult time. We urge law enforcement to urgently bring the perpetrators to book,” he said.
