Johannesburg - The Film and Publications Board (FPB) is investigating the content of a viral cellphone video that shows two children performing sexual acts on each other, it said on Thursday.

"We received the video... and we are still busy investigating it," spokesperson Prince Ndamase said.

Women and Men Against Child Abuse spokesperson Vincentia Dlamini said she saw the video and referred it to Eyewitness News. It was then handed over to the FPB.

"The boy in the video is around 3 or 4 years old, while the girl is between 8 and 10," she said.

"The girl seems to be leading the whole thing, and the boy is complying. Both of them seem to know what's happening. They perform acts that children, especially not at their age, would know about."

She said it wasn't clear whether the video was filmed in South Africa, but it was apparent that both children were African.

"All we are hoping for now is [for] someone to come forward and identify the children."

Police spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Lungelo Dlamini said he was not aware of the video.

Several weeks ago, another video showing a Soweto teenager being gang-raped by at least seven boys went viral. A number of arrests have been made in connection with this incident.
