Police have not yet found evidence linking a man, whose house was burnt down by an angry mob, to the murder of a woman in KwaMsane in northern KwaZulu-Natal.
Police spokesman Superintendent Jay Naicker said the police acted on information from members of the community and arrested the suspect who was still in custody, but it was not known when he would appear in court.
The suspect's one-roomed house was burnt down on Wednesday shortly after his arrest for the murder and robbery of Esther Mbatha, 65, of Mazala reserve in KwaMsane.
Mbatha was killed on November 10 during a robbery by two men at her home.
Mbatha died of a gunshot wound and her husband was injured.
Naicker said the men robbed the couple of R50 before they fled the scene.
Last week another suspect was arrested in connection with the case, but was later released when no evidence could be found to link him to Mbatha's death.
On Friday the KwaMsane community policing forum and traditional leaders met with the KwaMsane area police and encouraged people to work within the law and not to take the law into their own hands.
