A trial date has been set for 12 people accused of setting a pastor alight and murdering him. One of the accused is the induna of the community.
The group had claimed that Albert Malwane, a pastor of the Izwi Zion Christian Church in Boschfontein in South Africa had been using a magic invisible penis to sleep with women.
They also accused him of having the ability of talking to animals and accused his wife of being able to turn into a snail in order to terrorise the community.
Not only did the group, including the community headman, burn and kill the pastor, but they also burnt down his home in the Etitandini informal settlement.
His wife and daughter managed to escape and hide from the rabble.
The villagers then complained that Malwane’s family had used ‘muti’ to make them sick after Malwane’s death.
The 12 accused have not been asked to plead.
