Priest And Nephew Killed By Mob Justice. The two relatives were discovered nude under a tree that was close to a river.
A priest in Mpumalanga and his nephew were set alight on Thursday by a community mob. The two were accused of murdering two relatives. The priest and the nephew, Bheki Malumane and Wonder Mbuyane, have apparently acknowledged that they murdered the two relatives, Nontokozo Qibi and Slindile Qibi. They apparently said that they murdered the two relatives on Tuesday at Mganduzweni, a place near White River.
The two relatives were discovered nude under a tree that was close to a river. The two males allegedly just left the two relatives under the tree. According to Daily Sun, one of the people living there says that the other residents went to go speak to a prophet so that they may know who murdered the females.
The priest and three other people were supposedly taken out by the prophet. The community members turned their house upside-down. They found clothing that was dripping of blood, the bed had blood marks and they also discovered a bowl that was filled with blood.
The community member says, “We trusted him with our kids, we would even allow our kids to play in his house.” The community member said that the priest and his nephew have agreed to taking part in the murder of the two children. They acknowledge that they have taken the parts of the two children to a female in Hazyview.
The police spokesperson of Mpumalanga, Brigadier Leonard Hlathi said the authorities have opened a file for murder. He said that the residents should stopbeing vigilantes and they should allow the police authorities to do their jobs.
