DURBAN - Two men were due to appear at the Ntuzuma Magistrate’s Court on Friday for allegedly being in possession of human body parts, KwaZulu-Natal police said on Tuesday.
“The men were arrested for contravening the human tissue act. They are due to appear in Ntuzuma Magistrate’s Court on Friday,” said Lieutenant Colonel Vincent Mdunge.
On Sunday police arrested the first man in Nongoma after he was allegedly found with two human hands.
“After the man was arrested investigations led police to KwaMashu in Lindelani where a second man who claimed to be a traditional healer was allegedly found with a human body in a 20 litre bucket,” said Mdunge.
Both men were arrested on Sunday.
Mdunge said the head of the body was of an elderly man and the body was that of a child.
“The traditional healer said the body was a tokoloshe which he catches in the bush.... [that] it was not a human,” he said.
The body appeared to have scars but no blood stains. It was taken to a state mortuary, said Mdunge.
