Mentally ill Soweto woman accused of witchcraft dies after being set alight

A Soweto family is still traumatized after the horrific death of their mother, Jostina Sangweni who had dementia. She was attacked and burnt by community members on Friday while she was apparently on her way to consult with her spiritual healer. A video of the attack in which the voices of men insulting her can be heard, went viral on social media over the weekend. The family says she was attacked because she was wearing a traditional healer's attire and the community believed she was a witch. We spoke to Brigadier Mathapelo Peters, the Gauteng SAPS Spokesperson.
