While You’re Waiting IEC’s Final Result, Police Nabbed Sellers Of Human Head


South Africa is waiting for the final outcome for the 2016 local government elections. While they’re at that, two guys were trying to sell a human head.

Yep, you read right, a human head. Thanks to our crime fighters, the sellers of human head must now explain to the law how they got their product.

BuzzSouthAfrica learnt that the two guys, aged 20 and 24 were caught trying to sell the human head at Warwick Junction in Durban.

Confirming this, KwaZulu-Natal police related that the head had been burned beyond recognition.

Speaking, Captain Nqobile Gwala divulged that the suspects wanted to sell the head to informal traders seeking products for Sangoma traditional medicine.

Captain Gwala said: “A case of possession of human tissues is being investigated by Durban Central SAPS. They will appear in the Durban Magistrate’s Court soon.”

Meanwhile, SAPS earlier disclosed that they arrested 36 illegal immigrants in Welkom, Free State while South Africans were electing their leaders.

The illegal immigrants were caught by the Hawks and Theunissen police.

SAPS said: “The suspects aged between 17 and 37 years of age, were arrested after members were alerted of a suspicious broken down van parked on the side of the road near Theunissen.

Upon arrival at the scene, members found two males siting inside the van as well as a group of 9 males and two females that were sitting next to the road. The remaining suspects were found hiding under a bridge nearby.

As a result of the subsequent police investigation, members discovered that none of the immigrants had any valid documents to be in the country and they were then arrested.

Further probing revealed that the group were going to be sold for cheap labor in the Eastern Cape.”

This is the third group our crime fighters have intercepted. They recently intercepted others in Limpopo and North West.

As learnt, the driver and passenger will appear before the Theunissen Magistrate’s Court on Monday – 08 August 2016.

There, they’ll face charges of human smuggling and violation of the Immigration Act.

Also, the remaining 34 immigrants will appear at the same court separately on Monday for violating the Immigration Act.
