Centane, Eastern Cape - Police arrested 71 people in Centane on Tuesday for crimes related to a three-year-long feud between two communities, Eastern Cape police said.

They were arrested at their homes, Captain Jackson Manatha said.

“The suspects are linked to various crimes, such as murder, attempted murder, and public violence that have been sweeping the two locations during December 2012,” he said.

“Police recovered dangerous weapons, such as a pellet gun, eight axes, and two bush knives from the homesteads of the suspects.”

Manatha said residents of the Mrhawuzeli and Mthonjeni locations started fighting three years ago, apparently about land, and a 28-year-old man had died as a result. - Sapa
