Johannesburg - A Limpopo teacher accused of knocking over and killing two primary school pupils appeared in the Mankweng Magistrate's Court on Tuesday, police said.

William Tshwale, 37, a teacher at Ramabu High School, had his bail extended, said Constable Moses Molepo. "The matter was postponed to 25 July for further investigations."

At a previous court appearance Tshwale was granted R2 000 bail. He faces two charges of culpable homicide.

Tshwale was driving home from work at about 15:30 on 16 April when he allegedly struck the children.

Maite Matlala and Karabo Tauyatswala, both seven years old, were from Sebayeng Primary School in Mankweng.

They died on the scene.
