Durban - Two cousins are expected to appear in the Ntuzuma Magistrate's Court on Monday accused of murdering their neighbour because they thought she was a witch, KwaZulu-Natal police said.

Lieutenant Colonel Vincent Mdunge said the 25-year-old men were arrested last week after a month on the run.

They allegedly stoned to death their 54-year-old neighbour at her home in Ebuhleni village, near Inanda, because they thought she was a witch.

Her daughter witnessed the killing and alerted the police.

Mdunge said an investigation was launched. During this time the suspects fled.

Last week, one of them was arrested at a flat in Mount Moria and the other at his place of work in Montclair.

      sure, as you know they used to fly brooms, but in modernity they use vacuum cleaners with long extension cords... well here's the cruncher, wait till she's flying off to a meeting and when she reaches height, pull the plug on the cord.

    Which century are we living in? Or is their reasoning for killing her attributed to witchcraft because she had something they wanted, like a decent life.

    Herewith one of the big problems facing us here in SA. On the one hand the tenderpreneurs want Ferraris, Rolexes and sushi and on the other hand they also believe in witches, tokoloshes and are happy to slaughter a cow in their posh surburban gardens! wtf!!! They will always justify their actions by saying it is part of their "kulcha" (sic) but keep quiet when asked about the western luxuries they they all desire...
