Durban - The police team investigating the brutal mass murder of a family of eight on the South Coast of KwaZulu-Natal arrested two men on Wednesday. The eight, among them an elderly man and three young children, were hacked to death in the early hours of Wednesday morning. Hawks spokesperson Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi said that two men were traced by the multi-disciplinary task team. “The suspects allegedly accused the family members of practising witchcraft. The arrested suspects were found in possession of blood-stained clothes and shoes,” he said. “A jacket, which was worn by one of the suspects, was found shoved inside a pit toilet. Suspects, aged 26 and 28, will appear before the Scottburgh Magistrate’s Court on Friday, facing charges of murder,” Mulaudzi added. Acting National Police Commissioner Kgomotso Phalane said officers would not rest until all those responsible were arrested. “We convey our deepest condolences to the bereaved family and also assure them that we will dig deep in our quest to bring justice. We thank the Hawks, our K9 unit, the forensic team as well as the local police for gathering all the evidence which led to the arrest of the suspects,” he said.
