In the first incident a 24-year-old man was found dead on a field in Delft South on Sunday.
According to witnesses, the victim is known to “regularly rob” people on their way to work early in the morning.
Marjorie Willemse, 47, says she has also fallen victim to the deceased, and she watched as the community beat him to death.
“He sits and waits here on the corner for people coming over the field to work. This was bound to happen and I can’t say I blame the people for their anger. He has robbed and beaten up children as well. He died like the skollie he is,” says Willemse.
Police spokesperson, Sinathi Joni, confirms the case: “The discovery of a body of an unknown man at Sapele Street on Sunday at 7.36am is being investigated. A murder case has been opened with no arrests made at this point.”
In the second incident in Wallacedene, Kraaifontein, the body an unidentified man was found naked and badly beaten yesterday morning.
