The Mahikeng community is in turmoil after it emerged that body parts were being sold in their community.
Mahikeng is a sprouting community situated in the North West.
The community now wants the police to investigate the claims.
This comes after the body of Baitibadi Maduna (42) was found in bushes in the Dithakong East area recently. Some of her body parts were missing. The body of her 48-year-old partner, Macdonald Stevens was found nearby.
It is alleged that the lifeless bodies of the couple were found under bizarre circumstances in the bushes. Some of their body parts were missing and this raised an alarm among community members.
Media reports suggest that Stevens owns a taxi and his taxi was missing when his body was found.
Residents believe that the body parts might have been sold to human body parts traffickers.
This gruesome murder traumatised the community members who now fear for their lives.
“We are scared. We don’t even know if we are safe. We would love police to increase their presence,” says one commuity member.
