The police officers in Mountain Rise are searching for a man connected to a case of theft.
According to police spokesperson Captain Nqobile Gwala, the incident happened on June 27.
“She withdrew an undisclosed amount of cash that she had received when she terminated her employment. She then proceeded to Northdale in Pietermaritzburg to see her boyfriend and his brother who was traditional healer. On arrival at the traditional healer’s residence, she was instructed to place the money in a prayer room so that her ancestors can double her money. The victim did as requested and the brothers called upon the ancestors to do the necessary.”
The woman was later requested to buy alcohol to celebrate. When she returned, she found out that both had disappeared.
The police urge anyone possessing information about the suspects’ location to contact the nearest police station.
