Johannesburg - A sangoma and his driver were each granted R1 000 bail on Monday after appearing in connection with the alleged desecration of a grave in Mmabatho, North West police said.

"The two men were searched after they were seen leaving the cemetery carrying a suspicious bag early on Friday morning," spokesperson Captain Amanda Funani said.

Sangoma Koketso Jabane and Rapelang Modise were found with human remains belonging to the corpse of Sipho Lolwane, an albino, who was buried in the Moletsamongwe cemetery in 2002.

According to Funani, the same grave had been tampered with in 2011, but no arrests were made at the time.

The two men were expected to appear before the Mmabatho Magistrate's Court again on 7 December.
