Ntuma was married and had just completed his master's degree.

He was employed in the Department of Human Settlements.

Cele said, "it is something that it has no inch, it has no grain of explanation. Somebody, for me, went crazy."

"So we need to let IPID do its job....and every other process must be put in place....with full support and cooperation of the family."
