Durban - Two men were caught allegedly trying to sell a human head at Warwick Junction in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal police said on Friday.
The head had been burned beyond recognition, Captain Nqobile Gwala said.
The pair, aged 20 and 24, allegedly wanted to sell the head to informal traders on Thursday. The junction is a popular area for sangomas selling traditional medicine.
“A case of possession of human tissues is being investigated by Durban Central SAPS. They will appear in the Durban Magistrate's Court soon,” Gwala added.
