A victim of mob justice died and another was seriously burnt when they were beaten, tied up with wire and buried naked under a burning heap of tyres, rubble and wood in Khayelitsha, Cape Town.
Both were in their 20s.
On Sunday the incident brought to at least 12 the number of vigilante attacks this year, most in the Khayelitsha area, where the police say the community is dissatisfied with results from formal policing and the legal process.
The two men were attacked on an open plot behind a church, just off Old Lansdowne Road.
Khayelitsha police spokesperson Thozama Ndongeni said a man known only as Lunga, who later died, and Buyisile Jokweni, who is recovering in Tygerberg Hospital, had been drinking with friends in a shebeen on Saturday night.
