I’m tired of eating human flesh – Cannibal says as he surrenders to Police

A cannibal who walked in a police station holding a human leg told cops, I’m tired of eating human flesh, a court heard yesterday.

Nino Mbatha, 33, is said to have handed in part of a human leg and a hand to police at the station. This development led to an investigation that uncovered more remains in a nearby house.

Officers were then led to a woman’s mutilated body under some rocks in Estcourt, South Africa.

Mbatha, Lungisani Magubane, 31, and Khayelihle Lamula, 33, have been charged with the murder of 24-year-old mum Zanele Hlatshwayo.

Mbatha, who is also said to be a traditional healer, has also been charged with “handling human tissue”.

Prosecutors say Magubane and Lamula went to Mbatha for a good luck charm and he told them the ancestors insisted that blood needed to be spilled.

Lamula then found Zanele drunk and she agreed to get into his car, unaware that he planned to use her for rituals. The Pietermaritzburg High Court heard that Lamula then picked up Magubane and Mbatha and drove them all to a secluded spot where Mbatha killed the mum and ate parts of her body.

All three suspects have pleaded not guilty to all counts.

The woman’s body was found in August 2017 after one of the suspects reportedly led community members and police to where it was hidden. Police spokeswoman Colonel Thembeka Mbheke said the suspects were arrested after Mbatha walked into the Estcourt station with the human leg.

She said:

When he was questioned, he produced part of a human leg and a hand. Further investigation led police to a house where they were met with a foul smell, and more human remains were found.

A second suspect was also arrested in Estcourt and a third in the Amangwe area. More body parts were found.

A fourth suspect Sithembiso Sithole, 31 was arrested and charged, but reportedly killed himself in jail awaiting trial.

  1. You were not tired of eating human flesh. You have been arrested by God. How could they plead not guilty when the evidence is staring at everyone in the face.

    • Not in Nigeria…may God help us oh…animal living among human being…he should start eating himself ..now he is tired? Na wa oh.

  2. No matter will easily give in to a public charge more especially when guilty. As human flesh was sweet to them, their bodies should be bruised and tied for vultures to feed on.

  3. God please come and wipe of the world let’s start all over again… This is getting too much. Who knows when he has started eating it

  4. Who know how long he have been consuming human being, let him first of all be properly interrogated and name all their members, thereafter be prosecuted

  5. What is the gain of it now,blood of those he ate their flesh has started hurting you that’s why he surrendered by himself

  6. Hmmmm i see no reason people should involve theirselves in irrelevant life. What is the gain in eating human body.

  7. You have been arrested by God. How could they plead not guilty when the evidence is staring at everyone in the face.

  8. for him to bring himself willing and surrender to the law clearly shows that he is really tired. what kind of cannibal do we call this now? a repentant one? one will only wonder how he got into the human flesh eating business in the first place. if questions keep flowing in, it will sue be discovered that he has eaten more than we can imagine and something must have prompted him to just come give up on his thing. lets not meet such people we pray

  9. See God at work. Only God how many people they’ve killed and ate. They should be made to face the music and not be spared. Cannibals indeed.

  10. So horror for human being to be eating another human being, may god forgive him because he’s ready to submit himself to God.

  11. This is one of the disgusting thing I have ever heard before. For heaven sake how will one just wake up and start eating human beings… May God have mercy on him..

  12. God must have arrested his heart or he was under a spell to willingly surrender himself to the law. He will be duly judged and I am sure it must be a death sentence.

  13. As terrible as this seem, my one consolation is that for the first time in a while, Nigerians were not the ritualists in this report. Still it’s really sad that in a 21st century world, these kind of fetish dealings are still unleashed.

  14. People are very heartless, when he knw that he will get tired why did he start it. So continue with the eating it you die

  15. Oh my goodness. Nothing man cannot see on earth. Since he has surrender himself and some other being exposed I believe they will produce the rest. Let them be punished for their evil act.

  16. Nooo you haven’t started eating the sweet part stupid person. why must yhu be tired eat so that you can live long

  17. This is ridiculous . The wicked shall never go unpunished. How can one develop such a wicked heart to kil your own mother and eat her meat. This it total baberic in nature
