When officers questioned his outlandish statement, the man produced part of a human leg and a hand.

The evidence led to a house in KwaZulu-Natal where more body parts were found.

Mbhele says the suspects are alleged to have "raped, killed and cut up the body of a woman, which they then consumed".

Nino Mbatha, 32, Sthembiso Sithole, 31, Lindokuhle Masondo, 32, and Lungisani Magubane, 30, appeared in the Estcourt Magistrate's Court on Monday morning on charges of murder and conspiracy.

A fourth suspect faces charges relating to the possession of human organs and tissue.

All four men appeared in court yesterday and are due to appear again in court next week.

It has been reported the men raped, murdered and then ate a woman.

A police spokesperson told the BBC that it is possible that the four suspects are part of a bigger syndicate.

Missouri's Largest Newspapers Call For State Senator To Resign
Mike Parson (R), who is also president of the state Senate, said he plans to do just that if Chappelle-Nadal doesn't step down. Amid the response from her quickly deleted remark, she said she doesn't want to see the president assassinated.

Some residents confessed to eating human flesh provided by the suspect, said local official Mthembeni Majola, according to the News24 media outlet.

A South African village has been exposed as being home to hundreds of cannibals after one of the locals - a suspected killer - surrendered to police, saying he had lost the taste for human flesh, MailOnline has reported.

Mbatha had apparently worked as a practicing healer in Ladysmith before fleeing to Rensburgdrift earlier this year after another nyanga was reportedly attacked and killed, Majola said, although that killing has not be confirmed.

"This has happened within our community".

"We don't know what to do or who to trust", Majola said.

We know that five people have been arrested.

With him he brought a human limb.

However, cannibalism itself is not a crime in South Africa.
