Men held for brutal KwaZulu-Natal murders
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.
