Events of Criminal Case
Thembisile became a suspect after the player and Jack found her bucket on the crime scene. She immediately knew they wanted to ask about the murder, since she was the one who found the body, though she did not call the police because she panicked. When she went to get water that morning, her bucket caught on something. She pulled it out believing it to be an animal that got trapped, but was shocked to find it was a human girl. Since she was so distressed, Jack felt they should come speak to her again later.
Thembisile was interrogated again about a painting she gave to the victim. She said she recently had been seeing the victim hanging around the village, observing what goes on. Being eager to share Zulu culture with those eager to learn, Thembisile decided to approach Kayla, who had so many questions about Zulu life, the comings-and-goings in the village and so on. When Jack informed her that the victim was planning a murder and using her for inside info, she was angrily shocked saying she was fool for trusting her and that no evil deed goes unpunished.
Thembisile was later proven to be innocent after Kwanele Mthembu was incarcerated for Kayla's murder.
