The man, who is described by local media in South Africa as a ‘traditional healer’, reportedly walked into a police station to hand over human body parts – a leg and a hand – while telling officers: ‘I’m tired of eating human flesh.’

Police say the man confessed to the horrendous crime before leading them to a home in the town of Estcourt where they found more human remains.

They allege that the man raped, murdered, dismembered and even possibly ate several women.

He also implicated two other men in his crimes. All three appeared in court yesterday charged with murder.

A fourth man was also charged with possessing human flesh.

Councillor Mthembeni Majola said he fears more victims will be discovered.

‘When the police were following this matter they discovered eight ears in a pot where one man was staying,’ she said.

‘That means there is much more to this.’

Police spokeswoman Captain Charmaine Struwig said: ‘The three suspects are alleged to have murdered a woman and then cut her body up.

‘Allegations are that some consumed some of her flesh while some of her body parts were shared with the fourth suspect in Amangwe.

‘Human remains were found at one crime scene in Estcourt and another crime scene at Amangwe.

‘At this time only one person is suspected of having been killed and her identity is as yet unknown.’
