About Johannes Khangale

Johannes Khangale (1953 – 2019)

Brief overview:

Johannes (66), went missing on 13th April 2019, his body was discovered by his nephew on the night of April 15th. He was found in his room in a pool of blood, with a piece of rope around his neck. Some of his body parts had allegedly been removed.

Khangale was not working and survived on his grant, his nephew Bally Rambau said. “My uncle was a loving person who made sure that we were all raised well, irrespective of his not working. We will always think of the good he did for the family. He was such a wonderful person; we are totally devastated by his death,” he said.

“We are now living in fear and we do not know who will be the next, as these people never seem to get enough of our family. Look, they killed a defenceless elderly person and we do not have any doubt that they killed him for muti,” Sy Mukhuba said.

Brig. Mojapelo SAPS spokesperson said that they did not have conclusive evidence linking it to a ritual murder, but if the post mortem pointed to the contrary, the case would be changed. He cautioned community members to desist from spreading rumours and to give the police a chance to do their work.
