Johannesburg - Two men have been arrested for slitting the throats of a retired nurse and a cattle herder in Ngunjini, Vryheid, KwaZulu-Natal police said on Monday.

The bodies of 59-year-old Ntombi Sangweni and shepherd Thokozani Ncwane, who herded her cattle, were found on Friday, Lieutenant Colonel Vincent Mdunge said.

"One of the arrested men had the deceased's bank card, vehicle keys and cellphone in his possession. A blood-stained knife, presumed to be the murder weapon, was also confiscated."

The two arrested men would appear in court soon on two counts of murder and robbery with aggravating circumstances.

    HOW MUCH IS TOO MUCH ! I CALL FOR KANGAROO COURTS (WHO THEMSELVES ARE SUBJECT TO LEGAL PRECEDENTS BUT WHO HAVE THE AUTHORITY TO RULE BASED ON INFORMATION TO HAND) TO GIVE THE PEOPLE JUSTICE. A LARGE PERCENTAGE OF THIS POPULATION HAVE MUTATED BACKWARDS AND WILL NEVER EVER BE AN ASSET TO THIS WORLD. PEOPLE WHO BEAR FALSE WITNESS(PROVEN) TO THE KANGCOURT WILL BE BURNT AT THE STAKE.

    the police have all the evidence to secure life sentences but I know they will bungle the case. the defence attorney will have a field day because the cops get excited and forget the correct procedure.

    stu#d murderers still have trophies to prove to their friends what they have done.

    Two vicious murders = 10 years, parole in 6 (Like Hardus Lotter).
