Frightening and terrible things have happened in South Africa, but Cannibalism is surely the most despicable of them all.
Three suspects including an ANC Ward Councilor will be dragged to the Estcourt Magistrate’s Court today for practicing cannibalism in South Africa.
The suspects were arrested after one of them approached the Estcourt police and announced that he’s tired of consuming human flesh.
The crime fighters imagined the man was seriously high on something or deranged. But then, he gave them the biggest shock of their lives.
The man produced human body parts and handed it to the officers to back-up his story about feeding on human flesh.
Hinnews.com thought this story was a hoax until police spokesperson, Colonel Thembeka Mbhele confirmed that the suspects were arrested on Friday’s night.
The Colonel assured that the report is true. She related that one of the suspected walked up to police officers on duty at the Estcourt police station and informed them he’s been feeding on human flesh.
“When he was questioned, he produced part of a human leg and a hand,” stated the Colonel.
Further investigations led the police to a house in the Rensburgdrift area.
There, “…police were met with a foul smell and more human remains were found.” With that, a second suspect was arrested. The “third suspect, also an Nyanga, was arrested in Amangwe area. More body parts were found,” Colonel Mbhele divulged.
Mbhele further divulged that the suspects raped, killed and cut up the body of a woman, which they then consumed.
“The allegations by the suspect are that they would rape and kill the victims before they could cut them into pieces and eat their parts.”
Mbhele urged South Africans with missing relatives to come forward so that samples can be taken to perform DNA tests.
The suspects including the Councilor are facing “rape, murder, and charges relating to possession of human tissue,” Mbhele concluded.
