Durban - Three men were arrested for killing a priest in the Catholic Church Magwaza Mission in Melmoth, KwaZulu-Natal police said on Wednesday.

"Three men aged between 18 and 24 were arrested in their homes at KwaNongoma on Tuesday," Captain Thulani Zwane said.

"One of the suspects was wearing the deceased's shoes and clothing taken during the killing."

Catholic priest Senzo Mbokazi was killed in November in Melmoth.

"He was found dead in church with stab wounds and it is suspected he was strangled," said Zwane.

The men would be charged with murder and robbery with aggravating circumstances and would appear in the Melmoth Magistrate's Court on Friday.

    I have little or no tolerance for religion and especially priests, nevertheless what they did was damn well blooody wrong, I say give them exactly the same as what they gave to the now deceased.... NO MERCY,stab and strangle each of them as punishment (an eye for eye is the only way to get a message through to some ppl`s thick skulls) You kill an innocent and you will be killed in return.

      The barbarian wearing the priest's clothing is actually symbolic of the nature of South African criminals. He has been conditioned to understand that there are no consequences for his actions. The ANC has taught him well.

    We always have these stories about the really poor commiting crime because of thier social status. Surely if they had just asked they would have got some clothes, and a human being would still be alive.
