Two brothers – Raul Mathe (36), said he and his brother Bernard (30) – were kidnapped and beaten to a pulp by about 20 attackers after one of them was being accused of stealing someone’s girlfriend in Tembisa, Ekurhuleni, South Africa.
The Elder brother, Raul, said his younger brother, Bernard, who came to South Africa in January to look for a job, almost lost his penis because he was accused of stealing someone’s girlfriend.
“They wanted to remove Bernard’s manhood because they said it was used to poke their women,” said Raul.
However, Raul noted that his brother did not steal anybody’s body girlfriend because he is a good man who loves his wife and children. Raul said:
“He is a good man who loves his wife and children who are in Mozambique. My brother is in terrible pain. He could die at any moment.
Bernard’s younger brother, Carlos Mathe (28), said his mum did not take the news well.
“When our mum saw the disturbing video she took poison. Now she is in hospital,” he said.
Police spokesman Constable Yeroboam Mbatsane said cases of kidnapping, robbery and attempted murder were opened. “The two suspects appeared at the Cullinan Magistrates Court on Monday,” said Mbatsane.
He said they will appear in court today for a formal bail application.
