EFF says Hillary Gardee was shot in the head

The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) spokesperson Sinawo Tambo says a post-mortem on the body of Hillary Gardee has revealed that the deceased had a bullet wound on the head.

The party addressed the media on Wednesday after a visit to the Gardee family in Mpumalanga to pay their respects.

Hillary (28) the daughter of former EFF secretary general Godrich Gardeewho, was found murdered near Mbombela on Tuesday.

Sinawo said the bullet was removed from the back of Hillary’s head.

“We are thankful that the forensic team revealed this to us because we might have buried Hillary with a bullet.”

Thambo said these developments made the police seem incompetent, adding “the current developments are casting a huge shadow of doubt in the police service on how they are handling this matter”.
