South Africa: Passer-By Spots Decomposing Body Behind Cape Town Aquarium

The decomposing body of a homeless man was discovered by a passer-by behind the Marine Research Aquarium in Sea Point' Cape Town, on Wednesday afternoon, Western Cape police said.

Police spokesperson Sergeant Noloyiso Rwexana said the man, believed to be in his 50s, had been living on the street for 12 years.

It is unclear how long the man's body had been behind the building.

"An inquest case has been opened for investigation," Rwexana told News24.

This is the second body to be found in Sea Point in the past week.

The body of Rwandan doctor Raymond Dusabe' 40' was found in his holiday flat in the exclusive Bantry Place on Monday afternoon.

Netwerk24 reported that Junior Kamono, 29, appeared in the Cape Town Magistrate's court on Wednesday for Dusabe's murder.

Dusabe, Rwanda's first gynaecological oncologist, was completing his post graduate studies at Stellenbosch University at the time of his murder.

The case was postponed to January 17 for further investigation.
