Prophet’s dream comes up empty

2016-07-08 06:00

COMMUNITY members of Clydesdale in Umzimkhulu spent two days digging up graves after hearing about illegal burials on a piece of land.
On Tuesday a prophet from the village told people about his dream of 15 graves that were dug on illegal land in the area.
On Tuesday and Wednesday police and the community used spades and sniffer dogs to search for bodies that were buried in the land according to the prophet’s dream, however, nothing was found.

Community leader Siyabonga Malanda said no one was buried on the land, which was to be used as a dump site of Umzimkhulu Municipality last year.

“TLBs dug on the site and left without closing holes. The prophet is confusing people by saying that there are graves in the site.”

According to Malanda the prophet was carrying a cross when police and community members were digging at the site.

SAPS spokesperson in KZN Lieutenant-Colonel Thulani Zwane confirmed that nothing was found.
“Nothing was found and no case has been opened.”
