The unidentified body, which the Reserve Bank said in a statement on Monday could have been a stowaway, was already decomposing when it was found, according to news reports.

The plane was apparently on its way from Munich, Germany, to Durban and was carrying a quantity of South African rands. News reports quoted the Reserve Bank saying that a certain quantity of SA rands are produced outside the country.

There were six crew and a few officials from the bank onboard, news reports said.
