Police found the bodies of two women buried in the backyard of a house in Mpumalanga after a man confessed that he had met one of them through the social networking site Facebook.
Now he allegedly confessed that he had buried three more women in a house in the Masoii area.
Police spokesman Colonel Mtsholi Bhembe said the man was arrested about a month ago.
He said that the police exhumed the first body in the house about three weeks ago, and then found the second body.
“He admitted that he had sex with women. He told the police that he had met the first woman he had buried on Facebook, and they later met and slept together. ”
Bhembe said that the body of the second woman was found on Friday.
“We are currently going to the same place with the hope of transporting three more bodies in the same house,” he said.
