Johannesburg - Mystery shrouds the brutal killing of a teacher whose body was dumped on the side of the road near the Golden Highway next to the suburb of Lehae near Orange Farm, south of Joburg.
The body of Abrar Ahmed Jibhai, 27, was found with stab wounds in his forehead and bruises on his face. It was not known what the motive for the murder was, as police said he still had his phone on him as well as a wallet with money.
Jibhai was a teacher at Sir John Adamson High School in Winchester Hills in Joburg and taught economics to grades 10, 11 and 12 pupils as well as accounting to Grade 11s.
Allegations are that he was last seen on Sunday evening. It is not clear what his destination had been or who he had been with. He did not travel in his car as it was at the home he shared with his father and two younger sisters in Lenasia Extension 13.
His mother was murdered in 2005 when he was 16 and no one has been apprehended for her murder. According to Captain Mbulaheni Netshivodza of the Lenasia SAPS, two women stumbled upon a man's body on Monday morning while walking in Lehae near Zakariyya Park and informed the police.
