The naked body of a prominent Limpopo magistrate was found lying next to a used condom in a bush near Giyani yesterday.
Police identified the body as that of Giyani magistrate Nuel Maluleke, 58, of Mphangane village near Giyani.
A group of women who went to the bush in the early hours of the morning discovered Maluleke's body and alerted the police.
The body was lying in the middle of the bush about a kilometre from the main road to the village.
Maluleke's vehicle, a black Toyota Corolla bakkie, was allegedly also found near the body.
A source in the village says Maluleke was bonking a woman in the bush when he was killed.
"He was romantically involved with a woman in the next village and was caught while helping himself," says the source, who does not want to be named.
The police say the body has visible neck wounds.
It is suspected that he was shot several times in the neck before he died. It is not known yet when Maluleke was killed.
Limpopo police spokesman Superintendent Mohale Ramatseba says the motive for the murder is unknown and investigations will continue.
