Durban - Two people were hacked to death with pangas as they walked from their homes to work in Umlazi's D-Section at the weekend, KwaZulu-Natal police said on Tuesday.

A passer-by found the bodies of the man and woman on the side of a road on Saturday around 07:00, Major Shooz Magudulela said.

The motive for the murders was unknown and no arrests had been made. The two, who were neighbours, regularly walked to work together because their shifts started at similar times.
