Grieving father accused of witchcraft got nearly stoned to death

About 22 people have been arrested for apparently trying to stone a grieving father after his daughter's funeral on Saturday.

His daughter died when she drove into a tree, but the mob accused her father of using witchcraft to cause her death, said superintendent Ailwei Mushavhanamadi of Vhembe police in Limpopo on Monday.

The mob was part of the mourners who had attended the woman's funeral at NwaXinyama village near Makhado.

They even went to the dead woman's home for food afterwards, but then started gossiping about whether she'd been bewitched.
