Durban – The body of a KwaZulu-Natal woman who went missing two weeks ago has been found dismembered and buried in a shallow grave, police said on Monday.

Three men, aged between 18 and 20, were arrested on Sunday for the murder of Thandazile Mpunzi, 20, in Emanguzi, northern KwaZulu-Natal, Major Thulani Zwane said in a statement.

She was reported missing on August 5. A tip-off led to the arrest of the three men, who led them to the body.

It appeared that she had been strangled before she was cut into pieces and buried. The motive for the murder was not yet known.

The three would appear in the Emanguzi Magistrate’s Court soon.
