Johannesburg - The extradition hearing of Lesotho national Lehlohonolo Joseph Scott, accused of chopping up two people and boiling the heart of one of them, starts at the Durban Magistrate's Court on Thursday.

Scott was denied bail in May, because Magistrate Vanitha Armu said, according to extradition documents provided by the Lesotho government, there was a very strong case against Scott, 26.

Scott, who has been charged with two counts of murder and one of escaping from custody in Lesotho, faces extradition to Lesotho.

According to an affidavit by Lesotho director of public prosecutions Leaba Thetsane, Scott and his mother Malehlohono Scott, have been charged with the murders of Moholobela Seetsa, 13, and Kamohelo Mohata, 22.

According to the affidavit, Seetsa was cycling on 11 January 2012. He never returned to his home in Koalabata village.

Various body parts were found in a ditch a few days after he was reported missing.

Mohata, a first-year student from the same village, disappeared early in July 2012.

After a text message was sent to his parents saying he had gone to South Africa, police were tipped off about the Scotts' alleged involvement.

When they visited Malehlohono Scott's house, they found two arms and a leg in the back of a Corsa bakkie and testicles behind the seat.

Lehlohonolo Scott allegedly pointed out a knife that was used to stab Mohata, a wire used to strangle Seetsa, and a pot in which Seetsa's heart was apparently boiled.
