The man linked to the murder of a 17 year old girl from Browns Farm in Phillippi is set to appear in the Wynberg Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday.

The suspect in his 20s was arrested on Sunday.

Amahle Quku’s naked body was found on Saturday morning in Albert Luthuli Street.

It’s believed that the Grade 11 learner at Sinethemba High School in Philippi, was allegedly raped before she was murdered.

The educators and learners will picket outside the school, calling for an end to gender based violence.

The police say the exact cause of her death is yet to be determined.
