Samuel Mangebeletane Tsela is said to have been set on fire by the Mataffin community on Saturday, November 18, at the home where he was hiding after being charged with murdering Bontle Mashiyan in Mganduzweni more than a year prior.
Although the police are still on the scene and will later confirm if the man was Tsela, they confirmed his death in this way.

Meanwhile, some locals assert that he was responsible. They claimed to have seen him hiding in a particular neighborhood house.
Due to insufficient evidence, the KaBokweni Magistrate’s Court had provisionally dismissed Tsela’ charges on July 28.
