Hundreds of people in African town confess to eating human flesh

Murderous Pietermaritzburg cannibal tells Police he's “tired of eating humans”

"The charges they face at the moment are murder and conspiracy to commit murder", she said.

Four men have appeared in court in South Africa after a cannibal handed himself in to a police station, presenting officers with a woman's leg and hand and telling them: "I am exhausted of eating human flesh".

Col. Thembeka Mbhele, a police spokesman, said Mbatha - one of the accused cannibals who also acts as a traditional healer known as a "nyanga" - was arrested in Amangwe, where more body parts were found. Further investigation led police to a house in the Rensburgdrift area in Estcourt where they were met with a foul smell, and more human remains were found.

The National Prosecuting Authority's Natasha Ramkisson-Kara says the suspects appeared briefly in the Estcourt Magistrate's Court yesterday.

Ward councillor Mthembani Majola also told New24 that he was left stunned as the suspects showed community members where one of the body was stored.

"Allegations are that some consumed some of her flesh while some of her body parts were shared with the fourth suspect in Amangwe".

'That means there is much more to this'.

At a community meeting following the arrests, hundreds of local residents allegedly confessed to eating human flesh purchased from one of the accused, reports News 24.

'At this time only one person is suspected of having been killed and her identity is as yet unknown'.

At a community meeting of 700 people after the court case, 300 of those present admitted they had eaten human remains after they were given them by Mbatha as medicine.

"People we know and live with have now confessed to eating this woman".
