Muthi Murder Horror.

THE Mathibela Traditional Council in Bushbuckridge, Mpumalanga, has spoken out about the horror of muthi murders following the discovery of a mutilated body of a man.

Speaking earlier today, one of the council's leaders, Shanky Mokoena, said they were shocked to learn about the discovery of the body in Marite, outside Hazyview, on Wednesday morning.

"As traditional leaders, we want to condemn this act. People must stop killing others, as this is an indication it was done for muthi purposes. This has happened in our own backyard and it’s shocking," said Mokoena.

Mokoena said it was possible that the people who killed the man knew him.

"It could be an act of people who live around the area and knew the deceased was vulnerable. Even if they came from far away, it wasn’t supposed to have happened. We call upon those with information to come forward and assist the police in this matter," said Mokoena.

Provincial police spokesman Sergeant Gerald Sedibe said: "The body was dumped on the street at Tsakani Trust in Marite near Hazyview. When police arrived at the scene, which is not far from the murdered man’s house, they inspected the body and found that his genitals, lips and nose had been removed.”

Sedibe said it appeared that the man was killed inside his house before his body was dragged and dumped in the streets.

He said no suspects had yet been arrested and a case of murder was being investigated. Copyright © Africa 24 News. All rights reserved.
