Man behind Limpopo body parts trade to appear in court

A 23-year-old man who is the prime suspect in the human body parts harvesting case in Limpopo is on Tuesday expected to appear in the Thohoyandou Magistrate’s Court.

The suspect allegedly led a team of men digging up graves and selling human remains to a local traditional healer.

He was arrested in George in the Western Cape over the weekend.

He was hiding in a house belonging to a traditional healer, who is also one of the accused in this case.

Daniel Nephawe’s arrest brings to four the number of suspects arrested in the case.

Police have exhumed two graves and found them with some missing parts. The revelations were made by a 17-year-old girl who was in a relationship with the main suspect.

It took a Police task team about four days to arrest four suspects, since the grave was exhumed at Tshitavha- Mutshenzheni village.
