Johannesburg - Six people were arrested for murder and rape in Inanda, KwaZulu-Natal police said on Saturday.

"Police launched an operation on Thursday night to find suspects for murder cases committed in the area.

"A team of detectives arrested these suspects who had terrorised the community for a long time," said spokesman Colonel Vincent Mdunge.

Two of the men were charged with murder after they allegedly kidnapped a man from a building outside his home Emanyaseni.

His body was discovered two weeks later by a man herding cattle in the bushes.

"Three men were also arrested for a double murder which took place on Monday when a group of guys allegedly attacked and killed two young men."

The sixth man was charged with house robbery and rape which took place in the Bhambhayi area., said Mdunge.

The men, who are aged between 18 and 36, would appear in the Ntuzuma Magistrate's Court on Monday.
