Johannesburg - A 5-year-old boy who was allegedly kidnapped by his stepfather, has been found dead in an open veld in Majakaneng, Mooinooi, North West police said on Sunday.

Sergeant Philani Nkwalase said a shepherd walking through the veld found the body behind the Echo Berry farm on Saturday.

"Police found the body, with bruises on the neck and a fractured skull, shortly after they were alerted to the scene by the community," he said.

Nkwalase said further investigations revealed that the boy's mother registered a case of kidnap against his stepfather on Wednesday.

Police were searching for the stepfather, but he could not be found.

A case of murder was being investigated.

    Too many children are being murdered in South Africa, the poor child, and my condolences to his mother and family. We must demand that jail sentences for these child killers are increased, this killing must stop. What cruel people we have here in South Africa, far too many, I am so angry.

    These ppl have no respect for life, no love, no heart, they are pure evil. An employer ones told his employee that he can't bring his child to work because it's too dangerous. You know what the employee said. "No, don't worry, if this one dies, we just make another one." [True story] So there is your answer. They don't feel a thing for their own offspring.

      I know what you are trying to do...your "employer" means white and "employee" means white.Your exact statement is "black people do not care about their offspring and whites are great parents all over the world".Your little bird brain tells you to use a blanket approach to in this meter to refer to all black people as the "they" that"do not feel a thing" because it feeds your racist ego very well to do that and according to you "all black people were killed by their parents" and they do not exist.You are in dreamland my boy.
