A 41-year-old man in Mbombela, Mpumalanga was taken in for questioning on Monday in a case of possession of human body parts, according to the South African Police Service (SAPS).
Two other suspects, 45-year-old Jabulani Sam Mnguni and 49-year-old Pascal Mandla Gininda also appeared in the Eerstehoek Magistrate’s Court on Monday for the same crime, spokesperson Brigadier Leonard Hlathi said in a statement.
The two were arrested on Sunday in Elukwatini after police discovered a leg, placenta and a knee in their possession.
“Their arrest spirals from an intelligence driven operation which prompted police to follow up on information regarding a red sedan which was on its way to Elukwatini with two occupants conveying human body parts,” Hlathi said.
