Durban - A man is expected to appear in the Nyoni Magistrate's Court on Wednesday for allegedly killing a man and chopping off his arm, KwaZulu-Natal police said.

The 20-year-old was arrested in Nembe, near Sundumbili, after leading police to his house on Monday, where a severed arm was found hanging from a tree, Captain Thulani Zwane said in a statement.

The victim, 52, was killed in Magundaneni near Mandeni, on Sunday. He had been stabbed several times and his arm cut off. DNA tests were being conducted to see if the arm could be matched to the corpse.

    Do you really need to the DNA thing? It takes 3 years in SA for results. Can't you just do a visual matching?

      In nature the strong attack the week. In South Africa, it is still actively encouraged as an answer to anything.
