Known as the "Donnybrook Serial Killer", Zikode murdered 18
people, attempted to murder another 11 over a period of two years in the rural
Natal midlands town of Donnybrook in South Africa. All his victims were between
20 and 30. His modus operandi was to kick open the door of his victims' house,
shoot the men in the head and drag the women to nearby plantations, where he
would rape them repeatedly - sometimes for as long as five hours - and shoot
them. If they resisted he would shoot them first and commit necrophilia.
Sometimes he would attack women from behind in footpaths in the area. Mhlengwa, 21 was arrested on September 29, 1995 and is presently awaiting trial.
