Jayde Panayiotou's murder a reminder to give our best: Mayor Ben Fihla

APRIL 25, 2015

Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality Executive Mayor, Ben Fihla, has recounted the brutal abduction and murder of Riebeeck College teacher, Jayde Panayiotou, and said her death serves as a reminder that we must do our best every day.

Panayiotou was brazenly snatched outside her home at Stellen Glen in Deacon Road in Kabega Park early Tuesday morning.

“The 28-year-old teacher was abducted at her Kabega Park home after which she was brutally murdered and rudely dumped in a field in the Rocklands area.

“The senseless murder of this young lady, who still had a lot to offer society and those she interacted with on a daily basis, came as a shock to all of us.

“I am sure that this incident serves as a reminder that we must do our best every day,” Mayor Fihla said.

He also sympathized with the Panayiotou and Inggs families.

Police are still searching for two suspects who might help with their investigations.
