Natalie Venna Dube, was found with her throat slit open at a South African restaurant.

Gauteng police have arrested the manager of a Kensington restaurant, as they continue investigating the murder.

Dube was a waitress at the restaurant where her body was discovered by colleagues last Tuesday.

Police spokesman Richard Munyai said the woman was reported missing at the
Cleveland Police Station on Monday.

It is understood the woman was last seen with the manager on Monday night after he had instructed her not to go home early.

“Her hands and legs were tied with an electrical cord and her throat was slit open,”
Munyai told South African media.

The 36-year-old manager was arrested in Edenvale on Tuesday night.

Dube left Zimbabwe for South Africa earlier this year seeking greener pastures.
