2013-03-06 08:32

Ten pupils have been suspended at Lukhanyo Secondary School near Randfontein pending investigations into the alleged satanic murder of a 17-year-old girl.

The 10 were suspended after the death of Keamogetswe Sefularo who was stabbed on Friday at Mohlakeng, SABC news reported today.

“It is alleged that the 15-year-old suspect assaulted the victim while on their way from school. The victim died due to her injuries and the suspect was arrested the same evening,” said Captain Appel Ernst yesterday.

She appeared in the Randfontein Magistrate’s Court yesterday, and her case was postponed to March 12.

Ernst said the matter was postponed for the accused to be consulted by a social worker and for a report to be produced.

“The suspect is still in custody and no bail was granted,” said Ernst.

She would remain in a juvenile facility.

Meanwhile, the girl's family have told of their horror at hearing that her murderers had drunk blood from her body after stabbing her.

The murdered teen's brother, Zali Nxabi (28) said the family were holding a prayer meeting at their home when a friend of his murdered sister ran into the house and told them that “their leader” had instructed them to kill her.

The family recorded the conversation.

"She [the friend] said the leader and the girl who did the stabbing sucked Keamo's blood from [a wound] on her neck," said Nxabi.

He said he had heard rumours of satanic activity in the area but never thought it would affect his family.

"Her friend even told us that she knew nothing about their cult and that their leader had always been after Keamo's blood."
