Twist in doctor's death as body is found mutilated

The family of a Limpopo doctor who was burnt to death in a fatal accident at the weekend suspect foul play.

The family of Herman Mabina, 52, of Polokwane, suspect that he was attacked and killed by people who had a vendetta against him.

Speaking from the mortuary yesterday, Mabina's sister, Maria Maluleke, said some of his body parts were missing.

Maluleke said the family believe Mabina was attacked and killed by his foes on his way home to Polo- kwane before his car was set alight with him inside.

"We found sliced pieces of his body in the bushes near the scene, which shows that he was killed and mutilated before his car was set on fire," she said.

Sowetan is in possession of pictures of the mutilated pieces of Mabina's body.

The family will assist the police with investigations.

"We are sure that this was not an accident, but a premeditated attack," said a sobbing Maluleke.

"We are going to help the police with information and make sure that his assailants are locked up for a very long time."

Mabina was killed when his car apparently veered off the road, overturned and caught fire on the N1 between Belabela and Mookgophong on Sunday morning.

His body was found trapped in the car and burnt beyond recognition.

Mabina had just visited his mother and family in Belabela before the accident happened.

As if he knew his days were numbered, he reportedly hugged and kissed his mother, Lucy Maluleke, a few hours before he met his death.

A well-known gynaecologist in Limpopo, Mabina sprang into prominence in the health fraternity in the early 1980s.

He graduated from the University of Natal as a doctor in 1984. Mabina opened a surgery in Lebowakgomo in 1987 and another one in Polokwane a few years later.

He was also the brains behind Bina Medi-Clinic in Polokwane.

Police are investigating a case of culpable homicide.

How ironic that my father murder was mysterious. The police just left the case like that, no news about anything all we know is that he didnt die accidently he was shot before being burnt in his car and they made it look like an accident. My heart still pains, its true what they say, money can kill you, but I will find out who murdered him, I already do but I just need to gather things. I will fulfill my mothers wishes of finding out who murdered my father, because he told my mother that if he dies mysteriously and not naturaly then she must investigate, so that what I will do. I hope they know whats coming to "THEM"
