THERE'S a dangerous believe that human body parts make a strong muthi for instant riches.


This backward and evil practice has led to the deaths of many people Mzansi, whose body parts were cut off.

Speaking on Sunday at the funeral of a 16-year-old Limpopo girl who was killed for muthi, minister Faith Muthambi said the practice needs to stop.

"If you want to attract customers to your business just advertise on radio, TV and or in the newspapers.

"Human body parts can’t make people rich," said Muthambi.

Muthambi said when a death of this nature occurs, people point fingers at traditional leaders, prophets and business people.

She urged them to stand up and say not in our names.

Mthambi also urged those who attended the funeral to take care of their neighbours irrespective of their social standing.

She told residents of Gumbani that fighting crime is not a duty of the police alone, but a collective task of both police and the community.

Local chief Richard Mavasa said the community will soon organise a day long prayer to pray for the arrest of the suspect.

The funeral was attended by hundreds of local and neighbouring villagers including politicians and business people who also assisted with burial.
