He allegedly broke into his own cousin’s house on Friday, 2 April, and raped the man’s wife!
Angry residents of Casteel Trust in Bushbuckridge, Mpumalanga, then launched a manhunt for the 45-year-old man.
They caught him on Monday, 5 April, and burnt him to death.
A resident told the People’s Paper: “We’re tired of crime in the village.
“Cops arrest suspects and they’re later released.”
Colonel Donald Mdhluli said police and medical personnel were later informed about the rape and mob justice incidents.
“Upon arrival at the scene, they found the lifeless body of a man with burn wounds,” said Mdhluli.
The suspect was certified dead by paramedics.
“The man is said to be a suspect in a rape case where the victim was also assaulted,” he said.
“The man allegedly broke the door of his cousin’s house and assaulted his cousin and wife.
“He then took the wife to the bush, where he reportedly raped her repeatedly.”
Mdhluli said cases of rape and murder were opened.
“We’d like to condemn this act of vigilantism, where people take the law into their own hands,” he said.
“The public is warned to refrain from such actions and urged to report any criminality to the authorities.”
No one has been arrested yet and investigations continue.
