Police search for killers of Memela’s son, daughter-in-law

Gauteng police are still searching for the killers of government official Sandile Memela’s son Wamukelwe and his wife Wendy Campbell.

“No arrests have been made yet and we are investigating,” said Captain Doniah Mothutsane.

Wamukelwe Zuma-Memela (29) owner, chief executive and executive chef at Drizzle and Dazzle, a catering company, and his wife Wendy Campbell (28) were found dead in their Bryanston home by a relative on Friday morning. They had apparently been murdered around midnight on Thursday.

Campbell worked for Nedbank.

Their hands had been bound behind with cables.

“I think this criminal crowd came to the house in a stolen car. They parked in the garage. They used a window to get into the house. Once inside, they went to the upper floor, where the two were sleeping.

“Apparently a scuffle ensued – Wamukelwe was a feisty character. They injured him on the head with something, causing him to bleed profusely,” spokesperson for the national department of arts and culture Sandile Memela told the Sunday Independent.

Memela said the killers strangled the couple with electrical wires and made off with household goods.
