Two Nations established that the body of Nkosana Dube aged (25), a gold panner, has been lying at Newman Mafu (23) parents’ home since Tuesday and negotiations between the families are going on.
Dube was murdered on Sunday and his family is demanding six beasts before burial. Mafu is on the run, according to Police.
“The Dube family is demanding six beasts from the Mafu family who are offering two cattle. The body was dumped at the Mafu homestead at midnight on Tuesday and it’s still there,” said a mourner who requested anonymity.
Mat South Provincial Police spokesperson Inspector Loveness Mangena confirmed the case to Two Nations.
Major Dube also confirmed the issue and told Two Nations that his family is in negotiations with the Mafu family.
Dube and Mafu who were friends were watching soccer at Mabuze football pitch on Sunday when an argument arose over the sharing of money from gold sales.
“Mafu threatened to kill Dube but he was refrained,” said Inspector Mangena.
Later at night while Dube was drinking beer with other patrons he went outside to relieve himself with Mehluli Nkala and Mafu followed them and stabbed Dube on the chest and Nkala on the back.
