Brutal murder witnesses urged to come forward

Two bodies burnt beyond recognition were found in this Toyota Tazz in Matiyani Village outside Giyani last week.

This follows a gruesome discovery of two bodies burnt beyond recognition in a motor vehicle and another body with multiple gun shot wounds some meters away from the scene last week Monday.

Police spokesperson, Lieutenant Colonel Moatshe Ngoepe, said preliminary investigations revealed that a man and woman in their thirties were kidnapped by unknown men while driving a Toyota Tazz near Makonde Village outside Thohoyandou.

“The attackers loaded them into the boot of the vehicle and drove to a secluded area near Matiyani Village along the Punda Maria road. They were fatally shot, set alight inside the vehicle and burnt beyond recognition,” said Ngoepe.
