Johannesburg - The police's occult unit is investigating the murders of two schoolgirls, who were found in Dobsonville on Wednesday surrounded by candles and razors.

Friends of the girls - Thandeka Moganetsi, 14, and Chwayita Rhathazwayo, 16 - believe they were murdered in a satanic ritual, and fear they could be next, eNCA reported on Thursday.

The friends told eNCA they believe three people at their school who are apparently involved in satanism are responsible. However, police say no arrests have yet been made.

The girls went missing after school on Tuesday. They were found on Wednesday, still in their school uniforms.

The Star reported on Thursday that the two schoolgirls were inseparable. Friends believe the girls were meant to join a satanic group, and were sacrificed when one of them refused to join.

Chwayita was a member of the provincial swimming team. Her tearful mother told the newspaper that the family started looking for her when she did not return home on Tuesday.

Thandeka was an orphan, and Chwayita apparently wanted her family to adopt her.

Thandeka's grandmother told The Star that she thought her granddaughter had gone to a friend's home after school, adding that her behaviour had changed recently.
