This particular murder has incurred the wrath of the community, who decided to take the law into their own hands  in Limpopo. The boyfriend of 25-year-old Mavis Mabala has been arrested after her body was found in a bush, and an angry mob proceeded to torch the Vhulaudzi village police station.

Limpopo police on Saturday said they had cracked the Mabala’s case after she went missing on Wednesday, locating her body outside Phadzima village on Saturday.

“The disappearance of the deceased resulted in the community of Phadzima village venting their anger on the police and subsequently torching the Vhulaudzi police station and two police vehicles,” Lieutenant Colonel Moatshe Ngoepe said.

“The deceased’s 30-year-old boyfriend has been arrested for killing her and disposing of her body in the bush. He will appear in court soon.”
