Ezimangweni community members outside Durban killed a man who allegedly kidnapped, raped and killed a nine-year-old girl yesterday night, according to KwaZulu Natal police.

“The man, 30, was killed after he allegedly showed the community where he dumped the body. He was killed by the community early [Saturday],” said Director Phindile Radebe.

The girl was with her grandmother when she was kidnapped.

Radebe said the man allegedly dropped his cap while kidnapping the girl.

“We have been told that the cap helped the community to locate the suspect. The community beat him and he showed them where he dumped the body,” said Radebe.

She said the man was found in possession of wonga, a lethal combination of antiretrovirals, marijuana, rat poison, clay and detergents.
