On 10 November 1993 on the outskirts of Manguzi, KwaZulu-Natal, 34-year-old Clare Stewart, a rural development worker and active ANC and MK member, went missing on her way to a meeting with Department of Agriculture officials. Her body was found 2 weeks later. No arrests were made.

In May 1997 Stewart's brother and sister testified at a hearing of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) and her case was reopened for special investigation. However, TRC investigators conceded that they had been unable to “fully investigate” certain leads and recommended that the case be reopened for investigation. Her murder remains unsolved.
