A man was moered and burnt to death by an angry mob on Sunday, 29 January.
This after he allegedly r@ped and killed an 11-year-old girl and hid her bloodied body in the bushes on the outskirts of Dingleydale Village outside Thulamahashe, Mpumalanga.
The drama unfolded when the girl’s father left her with the man, who was his cousin, while he rushed to pay a taxi tariff.
But the girl and the man were nowhere to be found when the father returned.
He panicked and followed the man’s takkie tracks, which led him to a nearby mango orchard, but he only found his daughter’s wet p@nties with fresh blood.
He then alerted the villagers who searched for the girl.
They eventually found the man hiding in the reeds by the river and he confessed to r@ping and killing the girl. The angry mob moered the man and set him alight.
The girl’s mum from Orinoco told a local publication her child’s dad took her for a visit at his place in Dingleydale.

Brigadier Selvy Mohlala said police have opened two counts of murder and rape after a man was assaulted and burnt to death for allegedly raping and killing a girl in Dingleydale on Saturday.
He said the 40-year-old father was detained for child neglect. He will appear in Mhala Magistrates Court on Tuesday.
