The alarming and gory spate of killing in South Africa has assumed a frightening dimension, after some perceived ritual killers drove a man away from his home to set him alight.

The incident which left the community devastated, took place in  Marikana, near Rustenburg. According  to the North West Police station in Marikana, no arrest has been made in connection to the murder.

“We can confirm that the murder case was registered at Marikana police station. The incident happened in the early hours of (4 February 2017). No arrest at this stage and investigation continues”. Lieutenant Colonel Pelononi Makau  narrated.

It was further revealed that the man refused to participate in a ritual conducted in Marikana, because  he thought the ritual was  for cleansing people, involved in a recent murder incident in the area. The Sangoma who carried out the ritual, felt there was a sell out in the community and their victim, who refused to partake in the exercise was one of the traitors.
