GAUTENG police have arrested an inyanga who eluded them for the past two years over the murder and mutilation of a 4-year-old girl in Katlehong, Ekurhuleni.

A couple - a bishop of the Eden Church and his wife - were arrested last Tuesday.

Monde Tokwe, 48, and Nolufefe Magasane, 50, of Mandela informal settlement appeared in the Alberton magistrate's court onThursday.

The couple were arrested at their home in Katlehong on the East Rand.

The inyanga was arrested in his hideout in Mthatha in Eastern Cape.

"Police have discovered that the bishop and his wife consulted the inyanga and he suggested they needed to use muthi to get things right at their church," a source said.

Top cop Happy Vilankulu tracked down the inyanga and brought him back to Johannesburg last week.

"He has told the police where the girl was killed and how they killed her. Police are happy that all three suspects involved in this gruesome murder have been arrested and they all have confessed that they took part," the source said.

The three allegedly killed the girl and mutilated her body before it was dumped in an open veld.

The case against the couple was postponed to February 23 for a bail application.
