Two cannibals have been jailed for life after one was busted carrying a bag with a human hand and a leg inside.
When one surrendered to cops in South Africa, he told stunned detectives: “[I’m] tired of eating human flesh.”
Nino Mbatha, 33, and Lungisani Magubane, 32, were jailed for life Thursday for the murder of Zanele Hlatshwayo.
According to the Daily Mail, it was Mbatha — a self-proclaimed ‘traditional healer’ — that served up the sinister duo’s unappetizing antics to cops.
At first, cops believed Mbatha was pulling a sick joke on them.
But when he took detectives to a nearby house, they discovered more body parts.
Cops say Hlatshwayo was murdered and decapitated as part of a ritual killing performed by witch doctors to bring good luck.
Judge Peter Olsen described the murder as “heinous.”
The court was told that the female victim was beheaded by Mbatha who, with the help of Magubane, removed her internal organs, hands and feet in order to gain luck.
Mbatha told Magubane to eat the 24-year-old woman’s flesh for “good luck,” before claiming he was forced into cannibalism.
Another witch doctor killed himself before he could be brought to trial.
