Cape Town - A man has been arrested in Gugulethu for allegedly cutting out the heart of his ex-girlfriend’s current lover and eating it with a knife and fork.

Neighbours were awoken by a traumatised man who had witnessed the attack late on Tuesday night, reported the Times.

The suspect allegedly stabbed 62-year-old Mbuyiselo Manona in the chest and neck and bit the victim on the left side of his face.

A witness told the Cape Argus he looked through a window of Manona’s house and saw the suspect sitting next to Manona’s body and “digging from the body and stuffing his face”.

Police apparently found the suspect with a piece of heart dripping from his mouth.

Manona’s girlfriend, Nomonde Tshabalala, who had been living with him for three years, has been left in a state of shock.

Manona’s sisters also expressed their horror at his death and said he “didn’t deserve to die in the hands of an animal”.
