The five people arrested and accused of murdering a young girl aged 14, whom they claim was a demoniac, will again appear in court in uMlazi next week.
The accused, who are Fundiswa Faku (29), Lindelwa Jabulane (37), Minenhle Jabulane (25), Nokubonga Jabulane (18) and Nonhlanhla Mdletshe appeared in court on Monday, and the case has been postponed to March 19th, so that the investigation can continue and they can file a request for bail.
Sinethembe Dlamini (14) of J section in uMlazi, died on the scene after being disemboweled and having her private parts removed by the accused, who said that they were removing demons which they had pointed out were in her lower abdomen.
It is alleged that they prayed over her, saying that she was possessed by demons in her lower abdomen, after which they began to pull at her private parts, saying that they were removing the button in which the demons were hiding.
It is alleged that they pulled her and pulled out lumps of flesh from inside her and that her entrails came out through her private parts.
Spokesperson for the police in the province, Captain Thulani Zwane, said that police were dispatched to the area after members of the community raised the alarm about the incident.
“When the police arrive the little girl had already lost a lot of blood but they were able to arrest the five accused who have since been charged with murder,” explained Zwane. The accused are being held at Westville prison until they appear in court.
