Cops crack Tshatshalaza kangaroo court

Sixteen people, allegedly part of a kangaroo court in Msobomvu near Butterworth, were arrested on Friday, Eastern Cape police said.

Sergeant Namhla Mdleleni said the group, allegedly called “Tshatshalaza” or “Tutselani”, had been identified early in January.

The “court” which allegedly searches the homes of suspected criminals, sits on Sundays in Ibika and Cuba outside Butterworth.

Police are investigating eight charges, including one of murder, against the 16.

The suspects will appear in the Butterworth Magistrate’s Court on Monday. - Sapa
