Mtuba N2 hit-and-run
FAMILY members of a hit-and-run victim positively identified the man from only his leg, arm and clothing after his body was severely mangled.
The incident occurred on Saturday night on the N2 at Mfekayi, north of Mtubatuba.
KwaMsane police, who have opened a case of culpable homicide, suspect that the man was knocked over by a vehicle, but driven over by more vehicles throughout the night.
A community member told police that the man lived in Shikshela Reserve and was mentally ill and would walk up and down the N2 continuously.
Family members were tracked down and on arrival at the scene they were able to identify him as Makhona Nxumalo (38).
His remains were taken to the Mtubatuba mortuary.
