Soshanguve police are investigating the brutal murder of a man whose body was found in the township’s Block V, extension 1.
The man was murdered while millions of South Africans were celebrating their Easter holidays in various parts of the country.
The body was discovered by a middle aged man who was walking home from the fields on the third of April at about 6 in the morning. He alerted other residents who called the police. On close inspection it is evident that the scarred body was tortured severely. The man’s shirt was also full of blood. One of his fingers was cut.
The man’s driver’s license was still in the wallet but there was no money inside which gave an indication that he could have been mugged. Some of his family members believe his murder was a result of a hijacking.
