The children were playing in Zingqayi Village on Saturday when they made the grisly discovery, said Captain Jackson Manatha.

The boys then pointed out the skull to elders, who contacted the local police.

Relatives from Blue Sky village identified clothes found at the scene as his.

An inquest docket was opened for further investigation.
