South Africa – A man was caught with a human head believed to be his mother’s after the police were tipped off at girlfriend’s place.
The man identified as Tinashe a Zimbabwean native is believed to have had decaptated his mother’s head for ritual purposes as he had stored the had wrapped the head with white material normally identified with the white garment churches.
Tinashe went to his girlfriend’s place he had a violent relationship with. He threatened her to take him back or else he would do her like he did to his mother. His mother’s head had started to rot, and he had travelled from Pretoria and got caught in Mafikeni where the girlfriend resided and had intentions to cross the boarder into Botswana where presumably he was taking the head for ritual purposes.
Upon the hearing the threats Tinashe made and seeing him in possession of a human head, the girl was courageous enough to call the police and tipped them not to come with siren cars or uniforms. Tinashe was eventually caught.
