A sangoma and his crew have been arrested in Tshwane for digging up graves.
The trio was arrested last Friday in Mabopane.
Tshwane metro police spokesperson Isaac Mahamba says one of the suspects is a sangoma.
“TMPD regional members received a complaint from security guards who were working the night shift at a graveyard about people digging up graves.
“The officers responded swiftly and rushed to the graveyard. Upon arrival they found three people inside the grave busy digging. When the three suspects were questioned, they could not account for what they were doing and where they got the permission to dig up the graves.”
Mahamba says the three suspects also attempted to bribe the officers.
“They were allegedly looking for dead people’s bones for muti purposes. The suspects tried to offer a bribe of R1 500. They were then arrested for violation of graveyard.
