The Thulamela Local Municipality is a municipality in South Africa's Limpopo province. Following the 2016 South African local elections, much of the area that had previously been part of the municipality, including the town of Malamulele, was amalgamated into the newly formed Collins Chabane Local Municipality. It's called after the Thulamela ruins near the Kruger National Park's Pafuri Gate.
A form of mob justice When a horde of enraged people take matters into their own hands. Someone is usually hanged, burnt, or pitchforked in the conclusion. In the more rural sections of a country, this is a popular form of administering justice.
Mob justice is common in South Africa, and the application of the common purpose theory is the only means to effectively prosecute these "mob justice" cases.
