THE police are looking for a man who allegedly posed as a cop and asked villagers for directions to the house of a madala he is suspected to have killed.

On Monday night, madala Zama Mngcekulana (58) was found dead, not far from his home in Nyase Village, Tabankulu.


He had multiple stab wounds all over his body.

Captain Mlungisi Matidane said the main suspect is an unknown man who was the last person to see Zama alive.

“The man knocked at Zama’s door and asked the victim to go with him. This is according to Zama’s girlfriend, who was in the house when the stranger knocked,” said Matidane.

“Zama then left with him and that was the last time he was seen alive.

“Earlier in the day some neighbours claimed that the unknown man, who introduced himself as a cop, was asking around for directions to Zama’s house. When asked why he wanted to know where Zama lived, he allegedly said he had some questions to ask him about a police matter.”

Anyone with information about the incident should call Captain Matidane on 073 184 7886.
