Man dies after mob justice attack
Polokwane - A 20-year-old man has died in Lebowakgomo hospital after he was beaten by a crowd that accused him of stealing from a shop, Limpopo police said on Thursday.
Dumi Phasha was severely beaten by community members just before midnight on Tuesday at a shop in Tsoaing village in Ga-Mphahlele, said Captain Mamphaswa Seabi.
The youth was taken to hospital, but died on Wednesday.
Seabi said police were investigating a case of murder.
"As police we would like to urge our communities not to take the law into their own hands but detain the suspects until the police arrive," he said.
No arrests have been made.
