The murder of a colleague has not been resolved and City Power workers feel they could be next if they speak out.
"We don't know why he was murdered, but that's why everyone here was scared to talk to the M&G about the smart meter tender," one said.
Matlaba's family has refused to comment for fear of being harassed or intimidated.
The source said it was possible that he might have come across information about a mega-tender that was awarded irregularly and was in the process of blowing the whistle on it.
