THE murder of Matatiele traditional surgeon, Mzuvelile Mvimbi (45), remains a mystery to his wife Nobulelani and three children.

According to SAPS Mzuvelile’s body was discovered in a pool of blood next to a donga at Pholile village on 26 June.
Spokesperson Captain Raphael Motoung said: “Mvimbi’s throat was slit, and his tongue was cut our and is missing.
Police suspect that a knife was used and it is also suspected that the murderer was trying to remove the penis because there were wounds around it.”

Mvimbi’s wife told Fever that on 24 June her husband was called to heal initiates at Mount Frere and never returned.

“I last spoke to him over the phone on his way home. The thing that shocks me and my children is seeing photos of him in a pool of blood with his neck cut open on social media.”

Details of Mzuvelile’s murder are unclear and it has been alleged that a mentally ill person has been arrested who claimed to have killed him.

Motloung confirmed that a suspect had been arrested earlier, but released due to the lack of evidence.
Mzuvelilewas buried two weeks ago.

Motloung appeals to anyone with information that may lead to the arrest of a suspect to come forward.

The investigation is still under way.
