Family members of a man who was allegedly beaten to death by police in Umsinga, in the KwaZulu-Natal midlands on Saturday, say they do not have money to bury him.

S'bangani Zuma died after he was allegedly assaulted by police on Saturday night, the eve of burying his sister, who had died the previous week. Zuma was allegedly beaten with fists and kicked.

It is said the police demanded that he give them firearms he allegedly owned.

His brother, Zwangobani, told Sowetan yesterday that they will not bury his brother because they do not have the means and that "he is the responsibility of government since he was killed by police".

Local councillor Simon Mkhize said the council supported the call that the burial become the government's responsibility.

Police Superintendent Vincent Mdunge said four policemen appeared briefly in the Pomeroy magistrate's court and were released on R1000 bail each.
