The Sunday Independent has revealed that Hillary Gardee’s IT company, LZL Distributors, had a contract to supply and maintain wifi to the guest houses of one of the killers, Philemon Lukhele.

Gardee ‘s business partner, Lwazi Khoza, told the newspaper that LZL was providing wifi at five of Lukhele’ s guest houses, which hosted students from the University of Mpumalanga.

He said Hillary was the one responsible for visiting the properties and dealing with issues with Wi-Fi.

The newspaper said Lukhele ‘s guest houses were regularly used for s_ex orgies that involved students from the Mpumalanga University, who were drugged or drunk beforehand.


One of the accused, Sipho Mkhatshwa, told investigators that Hillary was gang rapped and killed at his lodge in Nelspruit before her body was dumped.

The University of Mpumalanga this week canceled accommodation for 54 students who were staying at three of  Lukhele’s lodges.

Gardee’s killers were caught after Mkhatshwa failed to pay a Sangoma from Inkomazi, who cleansed him after Hillary ‘s murder.

Mkhatshwa had offered to sell the Sangoma one of two albino children, who are the children of his fiancee. He previously tried to sell the albino children to an eSwatini national for R2 million.
