Mfuleni residents stunned by gruesome discovery of bodies

This weekend Mfuleni residents have been left stunned by the discovery of a decapitated body in the Covid informal settlement. On Saturday morning two unknown bodies were found dumped in an open field.

The victim, and another body alongside it with stab wounds, are believed to be from another area, as locals said they don’t know the victims.

Police spokesperson Andrea Traut said no arrests have yet to be made.

“At around 4.20pm the decapitated body of an unknown male was found at Old Faure Mfuleni. The circumstances surrounding the murder are being investigated,” said Traut.

Community leader Nonzwakazi Mngcitha has urged the police to make a swift arrest. Saying murdered people keep getting dumped in their area by outsider and this is tarnishing their image. He said their houses are next to the road therefore its easy for anyone to park and dump a body unnoticed especially during the night.

Ilitha Labantu spokesperson Siyabulela Monakali has appealed to all sectors of society to play their part in helping to root out this scourge of violence.

As an organization that advocates for the rights of women and children for over 32 years we are deeply concerned by the spike in murders of women in the Western Cape, through our observations we have witnessed that the Western Cape leads the rest of the nation in femicide cases, and it dawns upon us to ask very fundamental questions about the state of Gender Based Violence in our country,” said Monakali.
