eskomANA reports that power utility Eskom said on Tuesday it was saddened by the discovery of the body of its employee, Thembisile Yende, at the Springs substation in Ekurhuleni.  

Yende was reported missing two weeks ago.  She was last seen when she went to her workplace in Springs late in the evening on 17 May.  Her family went to the police station to report her missing after she did not return home and was not answering her phone.  Eskom said it was working closely with the SA Police Services (SAPS) to establish the circumstances under which Yende died.  Eskom group executive for human resources, Elsie Pule, conveyed the power utility's "deepest condolences to the Yende family who have lost their loved one and join the family in mourning".  The matter is currently under investigation by the SAPS and a post-mortem will be conducted to determine the cause and time of death.
