A Zulu man from Roodeport in South Africa collapsed, and died on top of a thigh vendor. The man, who has not been named, reportedly lost his life at a hotel.

According to newspaper reports, the hotel is famous for the thigh business.

Many people throng the said hotel to sample the delights of mostly xhosa women.

“We don’t know what these magoshas are doing to them. Maybe it’s excitement that kills them,” a hawker who trades nearby told South African Newspaper, the Daily Sun.

The thigh vendor, who later spoke to the SunTeam about the ordeal, said the man was on top of her when he started struggling to breath.

“I called out his name and started to speak to him but he stopped responding,” she said.

Seeing that the man was not moving, she shifted him to the side of the bed.

Terrified by what had just happened, she called the manager of the hotel to see the man lying motionless on the bed, and paramedics and the cops were called.

“I was shocked. This is the first time I’ve came across something like this.

“It is scary for a person to die on top of you, more so if you don’t know him,” the magosha said.

Another magosha said: “You need to be cleansed because it’s bad luck for this to happen.”

The man, who is believed to be from Tshepisong near Kagiso, was certified dead at the scene.

Magoshas milled around at the front gate of the hotel where they waited for their customers.

Daily Sun reported a similar incident two years ago at the same hotel.
