Singer who died in 2009 is taken in for questioning (+video)

Here‘s one I could not resist:

A man claiming to be resurrected multi-award winning maskandi (traditional Zulu folk music) artist Khulekani Kwakhe “Mgqumeni” Mseleku, has been taken in for questioning, KwaZulu-Natal police said on Monday.

“Police opened an inquest docket and we took the man in for questioning yesterday [Sunday],” police spokesperson Colonel Jay Naicker said.

“We have not done DNA tests or taken his fingerprints, but will be taking some samples to verify whether it is him or not. Detectives from the province will head the investigation.”

The singer apparently died in December 2009, after drinking something he got from a traditional healer. He was buried by his family in the KwaGxobanyawo cemetery in early 2010.

“I have been suffering a lot at the place where I was kept with zombies. It was hell there and I am so grateful that I was able to free myself and return to my family and you, my supporters,” The Timesquoted him as saying.

Investigations would determine whether the police needed to file a High Court application to exhume the body thought to be Mseleku’s.

After news broke on Thursday of the man’s arrival at his family’s homestead in Nquthu near Dundee, hysterical fans went to the village, according to weekend reports.

Naicker said investigations would continue on Monday.

Apparently, fans are flocking to Khulekani’s home, claiming a miracle.

And he’s on the telly. Here’s an SABC news report.

Makaboshwe kanye nenyanga yakhe futhi babolele ejele. Uthini ngalababtu abaphuma ezwni lonke? uthini ngezwe lase Ningizimu Africa ngaleleihlazo asifake kulo. Makaboshwe futhi nasejele usathola okunye ukuhlukunyezwa ngoba kunabantu abakhona ngapkhakathi abebemthanda kakhulu uMgqumeni futhi engineqiniso abayijabuleli lento ayenzile. Kudlalwe ngezindlebe zabantu kwalahleka izimali eziningi makagugele ejele uma sebutholakele ubufakazi bokuthi akayena uMgqumeni. Futhi akakhiphe iqiniso lokuthi obani asebenzisana nabo kulenyakanyaka aseyenzile ezweni siphoxekile ngempela ngesenzo sakhe

    • A translation from the zulu language by the singer Njabulo Thabiso Madlala, courtesy of Stephen Langridge: “I ask that justice should take it’s place in regards to this man. We will be very happy to see him heavily punished for upsetting wounds that had healed. Our hearts are full of blood. All this expense and nonsense he has caused the government who are paying the police who worked hard for nothing, what was he thinking? Or did he want to see how loved Mgqumeni was? He should be arrested along with his traditional healer and they should rot in jail. What has he to say about all these people from all over the world! What has he to say about the shame he has brought on to South Africa. He must be arrested and in jail he will be punished severely by those who loved Mgqumeni and whom I am sure are not happy about what this man has done. They made joke, manipulated and wasted our time, a lot of money lost. He should rot in jail as soon as evidence is found that he is not Mgqumeni. He should also reveal who he has been working with to create this mess which he has caused to South Africa. We are really disappointed of his doing.”

  • besingajabula uma kungenziwa amaDNA test kuthathwe namafinger prints ukuqinisekisa ukuthi nguyena yini UMGQUMENI lona noma cha bese saziswa umphumela ngoba thina njengabalandeli bakhe sidumele kakhulu.

  • I. Personally think that this man should be given a chance explain everything by means of a press conference that will be broadcast nationaly on TV bcoz nobody knows what’s what excatly,another think I think they should also do whatever it takes to find the truth diggin up the grave if we have to,,really black people r lame even if this is really Mgqumen we shouldn’t expect him to look like when we last saw him the guy wasn’t in some sort of a honeymoon!!imagine the trauma u go throu after seeing a baby snake ,compared to being kept in one room with all sorts of animals!!! If it was him in d coffin why his wives were refused the chance to see him
