A WOMAN was burnt to death at KwaPata on Tuesday morning in what is believed to have been an attempted robbery at a tuck-shop.

Thubelihle Mbelu (23) from Impendle was burnt to death inside a room that she was renting and the owner of the house Mehlokayifani Mbhense was rushed to hospital after he was rescued by other tenants and neighbours.

Mbelu was renting a room at Mbhense’s house as she had recently got a job in Pietermaritzburg.
